    I got the sphinx Y axis plates from chrisclub1 on ebay.

    The Y axis is the sphinx using 1000mm c-bean and lead screw.

    The X and Z axis is the C-Beam XL stuff. 1000mm c-beam and lead screw

    MDF from home depot. I cut into 2 squares bigger than 1000mm each side. Glue them together. Cut them into 1000mm squares.

    Playing around with the electronics.

    I got the Longs motor kit off of ebay. 3 Axis Nema 23 Stepper Motor 425oz-in 3.0A& Driver DM542A CNC Router kit. I also ordered a 185oz nema 23 for the Z axis and an extra DM542A for the Z.

    I got a cheap Dell pc desktop. I got the Mesa 5i25/7i76 plug and play kit for LinuxCNC. This guy has a couple of good blogs on how to set it up.

    Mesa Setup Part 1: Hardware | CNC Table Build


    Install the mesa 5i25 card in the Dell. I wiped the hard drive and loaded LinuxCNC.

    It was pretty easy to get things moving. My last build, I used a regular BOB c10. It took a week of troubleshooting in the LinuxCNC forums to get it to work right.

    Here are some pics and a video. Also in the pics is a step down card. It is used to supply 12 volts to the field power of the Mesa 7i76.

    Next step is to mount the motors.
