So I have decided its time to build my first CNC mill and I want an OX. but i have a few questions that I hope some people can shed some experience on. Here are the questions in no order. any help would be great ! 1) what Driver board and software to use, I see in the store there are a few options but when i look at people build they use a wide variety of boards for different prices. what is a good board below the $100 mark ? 2) Space- I see everyone builds their machines to stand flat on a table. and to cut in the horizontal plane. but what if you mount the machine vertically on a wall ? My thoughts behind this is. a) The shavings will fall away from the workpiece so no vacuum required. maybe have a collecting slot at the bottom for shavings. b) The workpiece has to be fixed to the table anyway, so doesn't matter if the table is vertical or horizontal. c) Uses less space in the workshop. thoughts are welcome ?
