Thanks for all the replies guys.

CR1 – not really looking for a router table, as that would make free style plunge routing somewhat impossible, as I’d need to see the face to know what or where I’m carving, but thanks for the suggestion.

Jason – I agree that it’s super close, as I’ve seen the sleds before, but just not as smooth as what I’m looking for, or practical for as large an area. Though I might be stuck with something like this in the end. Thanks for the tip :D

Cutmantom – the legacy is pretty much exactly what I am looking for, just was hoping there was a less hunky, smaller… (cheaper) version out there somewhere. I really only need 2 sets of rails, x and y, and then could use the routers own vertical adjustment. $1400 is just a lot of bread, not sure if I can justify it yet. But thank you – that is the closest thing out there it seems. It’s just odd to me that no one has built a CNC, without the C :D

Childress – I can see what you are saying about the vertical flex – this is why I was hoping to find a metal one somewhere – I don’t weld, so I have to find something prebuilt. Nice job though! And man, does that top look like a lot of work and patience. You must have achieved enlightenment during that process :D

David – That thing is awesome! It sucks I just bought all my shop tools, because that would have eliminated half of the space I just took up and half the expense. It’s plain genius! Nothing like that here in the states as far as I know.

Here’s a video of pretty much exactly what I would need, but trying not to have to build it myself, since I don’t do much with metal -

Thanks again to everyone for all the great suggestions!
