I finished my Lowrider2 build recently and really satisfied with the end result. I started my CNC adventure with a Genmitsu ProVER 3018. I learned a lot about CNC with that little machine and found a new tool for my woodworking arsenal. I was severely limited by it’s size and so I expanded it to a 3040, but I was still looking for something to support home projects I had in mind (furniture, decor, etc).
Thanks to Ryan for making his hard work publicly available to everyone! And thanks to everyone on this forum - I’ve learned so much from this forum and feel it’s a place where people can share freely without fear of being trolled like other social media platforms. I found the directions very straight forward and used Can’t Sit Still’s build video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyuDxpbRedk) for any additional guidance. Ryan shipped everything very fast - thanks for shipping to Hawaii! There are many suppliers online that do not ship to HI. I had a little bit of trouble finding the stainless steel tubes, but found a local supplier that also cut it for me.
I’m in the military which requires regular moves to the far reaches of the world, so I needed a table that was mobile and could adapt to different workspaces. I found LeeHart72’s table build on the forum (LowRider 2 Folding Table). The table is very sturdy and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It folds quickly and be stored in a much smaller space when not in use.
I was able to finish a few projects for my wife before the military took me away for training. Really happy with the results and look forward to continuing my CNC journey once I get home again!
I went with a very straight forward build without any real modifications. I have the mini Rambo control board. I have a Raspberry Pi setup with CNCJS. Are there any mods you all would recommend as I move forward? I was thinking steel side rails for the wheels of the CNC to ride on and a clear acrylic router plate.
Thanks again to everyone for all the support!
