      1. Special Notes

        Design ethos:

        Machine to be as small as viably possible, relevant to the work area requirements.
        Only the highest available quality products used.
        Machine is to be ergonomic & tidy.
        Wiring & Electronics to be contained within the machine’s extremities.
        Easy to use, with integrated protection systems.

    Reason for this Build

    I started with the X-carve, I didn't like the like the rigidity of it, so I used it to make some ganarty plates for the first C-beam style CNC machine. I looked @ other designs & noticed that many were big & bulky, so I tried to make my own CNC machine as compact as possible, relevant to the required work area.
