    Thanks for the support. I hope that we can continue to create functional machines that most can afford. Education is the key. Teaching our youth both the old and new ways of building and creating will open new doors for them.

    Please, can you post a photo of the bottom of the machine? I would like to see the lead screw mounting.

    I'm building a little machine with v-slot. In Y axis, i'm using 2 2020 extrusion in each side, with the "lead screw" between the 2020. The lead screw is a simple M12. But today I bought a real lead screw TR10. So, I'm back to SolidWorks. I don't know if I will keep the two motors in Y axis, or put just one in the middle, like yours, and usual machines.

    I decided to use 2 at first moment, because it's just nema 17, to move with enough power the gantry. And, to allow use the machine without a table, for example, to put the machine in a big piece of granite and make some engrave.

    Here's the version with the M12.

    Awesome little machine. Cant wait to finish my desktop CNC... I would always like to have the two motors on the Y especially if you want to place on top of the material.

    Thanks Mark,
    hey we modified the design of the wheel that you guys are selling online. It is a completely different style and material. Would you mind if we post this on the thread that I am preparing for the TITAN. Thanks for the support I will post pictures of it with the kids. Also if there is anything we can help you guys with let me know I have a lot of resources at hand.
