    Linkreincarnate published a new build:

    I have parts that are apparently not suited to a cnc router or a 3d printer. I am still trying to figure out what to make out of what I have. I was wondering if someone could take a look at my specs and tell me if it is better to go for a large scale 3d printer with these parts or a CNC plate maker. I already have a 3d printer so I'm leaning towards plate.

    Truly I'd add another stepper motor and stepper driver and build a CNC router with what you have. It'll look a bit Frankenstein but if it does the job who cares.

    As for the 618, that's way too much motor. If what you have won't cut it, go with the 611 or the little Makita.
