Hello all, So, I've ordered quite a few parts from Openparts, and have yet to actually complete any of my CNC projects lol. The thing that has been holding me back on my current build is getting my gantry plates done, I planned for them to be done in aluminum and have had problems finding someone to cut them for me. I tried doing one set by hand with a drill press but was not happy with the results. My press isn't the best in the world and the bit walked a little before starting some of the holes so things were a little off. That said, with the sale of the C-Beam mechanical kit today, I decided to go ahead and order one of those kits. I already have steppers, driver board, and power supply for my other build, and I had always considered building one smaller table top CNC and one bigger one so figured wth, I'll get this and build it and maybe I can use it to cut the plates to finish up my bigger one. Anyway, to the point of my post... I'm considering starting off with a trim router initially until I decide on and can get a spindle and VFD. Has anyone tried the Ridgid R24012 trim router on a CNC? It's about the same HP as the Bosch PR20, but it has a nice appealing lifetime service on it. I don't know if it's hard to actually get them to honor that, but maybe if I break it I can get it fixed hehe. Another reason I'm considering that one over the Bosch is because right now Home Depot has a package where you can get the router and a 1/4 sheet sander for $99. I could make use of the sander as well so it seems like a pretty good deal if the router will work for getting me started. Also a side question if anyone reading this happens to know. Is there a good place to source some softer materials like Delrin plastic for cheap? All the stuff I can find seems crazy expensive. Like 50+ dollars for one piece of 12" x 12". Delrin seems like it'd make a great material for making small brackets or prototyping pieces before doing a more time consuming cut in a harder material. Thanks for any feedback, and I welcome alternate suggestions as well.
