    Hi guys, in the process of designing my own CNC machine using openbuilds solid v-wheels,2040, 17mm form ply, 3mm and 6mm aluminium plate.
    I'll post some pictures soon.
    Keen to know what sort of Z travel you guys are building to?
    Currently working on 75mm travel...... Will it be enough? :) only really planning on cutting ply and comp panel.
    Die grinder vs edge trimmer for a spindle?
    What sort of load will a nema 17 handle using the ACME 8mm setup on the Z axis? Panning on running it with a Gecko 540.
    What sort of radial and axial loads can the solid v-wheels take?
