    Nice design, looking forward to seeing it in action. Would like to see how much power the NEMA 17s offer on a screw drive. They’re fairly anemic with GT2 belts but screws should give them about a 5x mechanical advantage which should be pretty decent.

    That's a very compact and sturdy machine. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    I would have made one change to it. I would have put the top router clamp at the top most possible position on the router rather than tight to the bottom clamp.

    Hey, by any chance could we get the plans for this? I'd love to build this myself.

    Exactly the inspiration I was looking for. I really would like to see it in action!
