      First a little about my cnc experience which equals none. This includes experience with cad/cam software as well. So I will be learning as I go and hopefully not do to many mistakes on the way. With some help from the members here, which i allready have startet to recieve, I believe this will be possible.

      So why am I building this? I love gadgets, and love to build stuff. I have a small woodworking shop in my basement and plan to use this there. Firstly for small woodworking projects, but also be able to cut som aluminum parts like brackets and mounts. I have been loking at doing this for the last 4-5 years. On the long run i plan to maybe make a larger macine and i would love to use this build to make parts for that.

      So whats my plan and what do i need to complete this.
      I have started to order parts and doing reaserch as to what i want to get. This can be divided in to the following areas:

      Base cnc kit:
      Ooznest OX cnc mechanical kit - ordered

      Modifications to OX kit:
      Dual belt on x and y axes - ordered
      C-beam for x axis - ordered

      1.5kw spindle + vfd - ordered

      Motion controller:
      Still doing research, but would like something that i can hook up with ethernet. Maybe a smoothstepper and g540.

      Auto z probe
      Limit switch or proximity sensors

      Have old machine that i will use.

      cad/cam - I'm liking autodesk Fusion 360 which is free for my use.
      Mach 3 or linux cnc
