This mpcnc will live indoors as a plotter while getting up to speed, then move to a spindle outside. Plywood and 2x3s table cut with bent skillsaw. Jigsaw was the way to go for cutting the emt.
22.25" rails. Wanted a short z-axis travel, 2.5" would be enough. I cut the legs at 2" but they don’t reach the bottom of the feet, not a problem. With the corner/lock resting directly on the new foot the minimum leg length to reach bottom would be 2.25", putting the minimum possible z work height at 2.75" for stock setup. I left my z rails 1/4" short at 10". Might need to add in a 1/4" floorboard.
Manual motion is smooth and clean with minimal fuss - awesome design and quality parts.
