The project: upgrade this guy to a bigger cutting table. This probably means switching to a moving gantry and fixed table, instead of the current fixed gantry and moving table. I'd also like to add in a dust collection hookup, and maybe an enclosure. And a pony.

I'll get to work on a CAD drawing of the pony.

Sweet design. It'd be neat to see how this would scale up to the size we're looking at: http://www.youtube.com/user/momusCNCdes ... 7r5RRUfZqM

Good price for a big beefy motor if we want to upgrade: http://www.geckodrive.com/g723-400-p-53.html
