Before my question, I want to say Thank you to Allted for making this possible! I know you have heard it a lot, but this project is really awesome, and I have huge respect for the design aspects. I love the efficiency of it all, and the ability to change between all of the various tools that make CNC machines awesome.
I just ordered my kit, and I am excitedly preparing for its arrival. I already got my 3/4 conduit etc… but I had a footprint size question. I have read through everything I could find about this, and I am trying to make my final decisions before cutting anything or building my table. In the Specifications page on size it says that the kit comes with parts for 48" of X and Y. Would this work out as 24"x 24" of actual X-Y work area, or is that like 24" x 24" of just total machine footprint.
