These posts show my build and other useful information I developed on my CNC journey.  I’m just a hobbyist that uses my machines to build Radio Controlled parts for my planes and drones.  I’ve learn’t many things and made a few mistakes but mistakes aren’t always bad you can lean a lot from them.  Software is often the biggest challenge and I use both Mach3 and LinuxCNC which is OpenSource (free).

Included is the build of my CNC router supplied by Ooznest which uses the Openbuilds OX design.  Ooznest have made a few improvements to increase rigidity and it performs really well.  I use my 4 axis TB6560 controller to power mine as used on my Hot Wire CNC foam cutter

Hope they help
