    Hello all fellow Openbuilds users. Was looking to build a machine but not sure really on size vs stable. The machine I have seen here called the Routy looks like a good build but I was curious if I made it roughly 4ft x 2ft if I would experience bending or anything like that. If so, do I need more of an Ox type build? Thanks in advance.

    Depends too on the materials you plan on machining. Read up on a few of the Ox builds and some of the Routy type builds and weigh the pros and cons. Here are the links to my 2 builds, one is a pretty much stock Ox build the other is a highly modded version.
