Hello I am very happy to find this website and forum. I have been building things all my life and the issue always has been to collect all the parts. When I got involved in guitar building the problem was getting a critical mass of tools together to do a decent job. It has taken me years and several thousand dollars to collect what I need. The idea of open source fits with my old hippie liberal mentality. Sharing ideas and sources of were to buy things to build things. I am now teaching guitar building and I have developed a few tools with off the shelf parts. I look forwards to experimenting with open rail and it's components. To build additional need tools for my classes. I want to build a small CNC for part making and tool making. I am excited about building a OX when it is released.
