WE WON! Grand Prize winner!. Thank You all for the votes and cooperation.
Nice write up, explains this in more detail Here
I set out to build a minimal cost CNC Machine with the goal of some basic aluminum capabilities and easily swap out the functionality.
Hardware and printed parts available here.
The only special tools needed are a hacksaw, and a drill to for 4 holes.
This can be easily expanded to almost any length, width, and depth depending on rigidity required. Shorter lengths = more rigid. This is built using hardware store emt conduit (In the US it is sold as 3/4" (ID)), or as an upgrade you can use stainless steel tubing.
Most woods and plastics should be no problem. I milled Aluminum with a footprint of 23.5in x 32in x 4in. Aluminum works well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIYMuYgX0rY
You can switch the spindle out with a drag knife, laser, Extruder, ect, making it a great prototyping multi-tool. By adding length and depth It could easily be used to shape large easily milled things like wood, foam, or plastics. Keep it small for aluminum.
