I am currently making the CAD model of this mill before I build the mill to see what I will need to make on my C-beam machine and what I still need to purchase too build this mill. I am currently planning o using MGN 12 linear slides for the XY-table and either ball screws or lead screws to drive this table. for the z I am unsure if I'm going to use linear slides or v-wheels.
Build in 'X/Y Table Style CNC Mill' published by dtanney, Nov 22, 2017.
This will be a CNC milling machine. My goal is to make this mill for the minimum cost I can while not sacrificing quality. In hope of staring an educational YouTube channel on CNC milling and 3D Printing. Along with when to use both.
