Wow what a great DIY project site! Good work, all!
I am seriously interested in building one of these, but for my word working uses, I would really need a router. And, being that I'd like this to replace most of my other shop tools, I would want it to be able to work on a 4'x8' panel.
I've read around the forum a bit and found a few people asking about extending the range and replacing the dremmel with a router, but I cannot get a clear picture of how to accomplish these.
So, if I were to take it upon myself to attempt to extend the range, it would be a great help if the designers could let me know what parts I would have to replace with longer parts (on the parts list found on pages 19-22).
Enlarging the CNC to 96"x48" (which would probably require the cutting area to actually be about 102"x54") would make this project a must-have for any woodworker. I am interested in doing the leg work, but need a little help getting started. I am having a hard time visualizing what parts need to be replaced.
I do understand that all of this work is done out of the goodness of the designers' and community's heart, so please do not think I am being critical or demanding. Thank you!
