I’m tinkering with the idea of building a home CNC machine but all the Internet sites are not user friendly…has anyone built one and have a place where I could get good plans?

The ShapeOko is an opensource, hobby-level CNC router which is quite affordable in its most basic form ($300), but has been upgraded past 1.2m x 1.2m (maybe larger—- there’s no real limit) and to use routers as large as a Dewalt DWP 611 or Bosch Colt PR 20 (one person even mounted a 1500 Watt 220V spindle).

All plans, part drawings/specs/CAD files are at: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

It’s easiest to just buy a kit ($225, or 599), but one could build it from scratch—- one person was able to rebuild his original machine after upgrading everything.

Ask on the forums if you have any questions.
