Well some of you fellow LJ’s have been following my blog on my CNC adventure, and if not you can view my blog here. I finally finished my CNC and did a test cut that you can see here:

There are a few more things I need to add, such as: limit switches, E-Stop, and dust cover just to name a few.
I did get an E-Stop and limit switches from CNC4PC but did not wire them up yet. They can be seen in my Part 4 blog.

If you have any questions, please visit my website or blog first and if you didn’t find an answer, I will be glad to answer them for you.
Thanks,
Kyle

P.S. Next Project- Electric Guitar for my friend.

Great job! It’s so great to see a 17 year old out there with this kind of enthusiasm. Keep it up and you’ll go far!

That is amazing that you can make your own CNC machine. The uses are endless. I
It looks real solid and the placement of all the components is very neat. You can be proud of that project and you are so young!! What will be next?????

That is a great build, and being that you did this at 17 makes it even more impressive.
