This is my first build, went small scale with it to learn the build and configuration. Ultimately I would like to later build a larger bed, more solid frame and go rack and pinion with a solid router head in order to cut electric guitar bodies and necks. However, if this build proves reliable, I would switch the router on this setup with my dremel in order to cut fretboard and inlays.
First build - small scale
Using basic standard components, beams, motors, belt drive on x and y, z is a screw. Using Grbl Panel on Windows 10. Really basic router, had trouble getting the controller to turn on the router and set speeds so it is currently wired to a power bar switch so it runs full speed and I just use the switch to turn it on and off. Just getting x, y and z control working properly for now and likely going to switch the router to my dremel 4000 using a 3d printed mounting bracket I got from thingiverse

Inspired byMy buddy swens has a nice 4'x6' build, I was very impressed and wanted to get started with a small build. I will document more of the build later.
