    Hi all. Am very new here, so.not sure if this pozt is in the right section.

    I have 2m of c beam and 2x 500mm 1605 ball screws. I would like to build a small CNC that uses 1 ball screw per X and Y, then a small lead screw for the Z.

    I have numerous small lengths of 2040 and 2020. Are there any suggestions on what small CNC I can build using what I have. I prefer to not have to buy another large ball screw if possible.

    I would like to machine small 200x200x5mm sized alloy plates and MDF as my materials to cut with new build.

    Based on the above info above can anyone point me to something that can use three parts I have. I will of course look to buy nema23 motors as well.
