The idea came to construct the Router when I saw how many jobs there are for CNC operators and programmers. I started researching builds and ideas online. I then went in search of 2nd hand materials and parts that would work. (This determined the overall foot print of my machine.) After finding some 25x25x 950mm ballscrews and some second hand linear rails I got stuck in. (I'll load more photo's of my build progress soon)

This project has been a steep learning curve in an unfamiliar area for me. It has been a very rewarding experience and has opened up so many more possibilities to pursue in the future.

Reason for this BuildThe main reason for this build was to give my students another experience that they may never get. I believe in hands on learning and what better way than having the CNC there to try.
