    Finally moved mine out to the garage (it was sitting on the living room floor for a few weeks — the wife is pleased!).

    Haven’t milled anything yet — still testing and dialing it in (have drawn a few things with a Sharpie). I have a lot to learn about CNC milling first.

    The router is a Makita RT0700CX. I added the “MShoe” dust shoe, with a few pretty lights attached. It’s using 25mm chromed wardrobe rails (from Screwfix in the UK). They’re very thin walled but appear to be very rigid — let’s hope the chrome plating holds up.

    The spindle is controlled via a relay from the D9 fan output. The original relay was rated at 240V/10A, but the smell of ozone was overpowering. I’ve added an outboard relay box and am waiting for a beefier relay to arrive.

    Thank you very much for the fantastic design — can’t wait to get milling!

    Looking good! Did you design the ramps/lcd case or where did you find it?

    Thanks! The main control panel is my design, but it’s just a couple of sheets of plastic with a few holes for switches and wires. It holds the PSU and relay. The LCD case is glued in top of that… it’s a design from thingiverse.

    The ramps case is mounted below, on the leg.
