      Much more detail to come, but here is the preview of the OX PPR - Portable Plasma Router. The main design criteria for this unit are:

      1) Mainly a plasma cutter, but also a router. Just need to change the tool holder.
      2) Leadscrews instead of belts. (Currently built with belts. Could be changed to screws later)
      3) X axis ~60mm lower to accommodate a lower tool position.
      4) Wheels on Y axis face outward, to reduce the amount of debris on wheels.

      --------------------------------------

      Information below is obsolete. No longer using lead screws, using belts for now. The gantry plate design still supports lead screw placement, if the machine was to be converted in the future.

      The 3D model is a work in progress. However, it's starting to look good. Details on the build to come. ox_ppr_v1_2.jpg
