Homebuilt 3 axis CNC router. This is a fully enclosed design that fits on a workbench. The cutting area is about 16″ x 16″ x 5.5″. X and Y axis are belt drive to achieve high cutting speeds. The cost to build this was less than 0 (not counting the electronics or the router) and requires no special tools to build. No welding, no machining, just basic woodworking skills. It uses a laminate trimmer as the spindle. All linear motion bearings are micro-adjustable so it can be adjusted to a high level of accuracy. The machine is set up with a Xylotex drive board and their 276 oz/in stepper motors. Plans and very detailed build instructions for the machine are available for sale on Ebay. The plans are in a 140 page manual that also includes general information about CNC and CAD/CAM, and even includes a section about machine design if you are interested in building something different than this.
