    Your machine is a great build I am working on design for a 48 x 96 router table to utilize as a slab planer. Your design would be perfect. Where can I see the details of your plan to get ideas to complete mine? Thanks

    That's a great idea Mike! I really like how self contained the unit is as well. Nice job and thanks for sharing :thumbsup: Looking forward to seeing the finalized version.

    Mike, did you 3d print the cable channel? If yes, which one off Thingyvers did you use or is it your own design?

    Thanks all. But this project has outgrown its' intended use. The laser engraving feature of our product has exploded due to this build, and we're working on a separated version now.

    Stay tuned for what we come up with given current resources.

    The cable carrier is OG but available at Thingiverse is several remakes. Look for over under cable chain.

    Happy to share pics and files. So far this has been a "seat of your pants" build.
