I’m building a 3’x4′ (~25″ x ~37″ working area) MPCNC using a Makita RT0701C router. I doubt I do much metal work at all if ever to be honest. My main focuses are woodworking and laser work for signs/clocks/cuttingboards/ and furniture inlays. I wanted to make sure I could do what I could to make it rigid since I was going beyond the recommended starting size so I decided to go for the stainless tube. As I mentioned I haven’t finished building yet but I hope it will be rigid enough to give me some accurate work at my size. I guess time will tell.
