    Money no object? 3HP (upgradable as power supply allows), auto-toolchanging, 20k RPM, 5-axis, servo-driven, linear rail and ballscrew 500x300x300mm/20x12x12" VMC. Steel chassis, polymer concrete frame, scraped steel inserts for rail mounting. Flood coolant, chip wash and conveyor, pallet pool and robotic arm.

    What's ACTUALLY gonna happen next? Currently looking like servos on the Grizzly minimill and using the completed machine to build a 4th(/5th?) axis. I have a lot of parts to run before the year's out!

    I'm just trying to establish a workshop that will be, in the end, only half as good as the one you are showing!!! But then again, if I had one as nice as that, I'd not want to make a mess so would probably just sit and enjoy looking at it. :D It's given me some ideas though!

    A modular open source enclosure for my 3D printer!

    And next a CNC machine obviously, a dream since long time ago! I have some idea that I have never seen here, maybe they are bad :D

    OpenBuilds C-Beam XL is currently underway. Mechanical parts are together (about 8 hrs build time), but I have a couple of items that I'm not happy with and will be doing a bit of tweaking and tuning tomorrow.

    As for what's next... maybe a 60W laser machine.
