Joe Harris's all metal CNC Router build
Build in 'Cartesian Style CNC' published by Joerharris, Dec 4, 2017.
I'm building a CNC router in my garage (almost finished!) and I'm keeping a video build log of the process in the hope it may be useful to others wanting to do the same. I don't have much in the way of fancy tools so expect a bit of innovation on the way!
