    Nice videos and a very nice machine build.

    Maybe I missed it but what is the working area size? By the way I hope you haveafull enclosure plan for the electronics, they look rather exposed in the videos.

    The water pan is 29Ēx50Ē so the working area is just a little smaller, maybe an inch in each direction. Yeah, Iím going to put a recessed clear cover over the face and there is protection behind the panel where the electronics are mounted...

    I would love to have one of these in my shop. I don't quite have the room for one that big, but I could see myself using a 24" x 24" unit A LOT. What do you guess that you have into it cost wise?

    Thatís a really good question, I havenít sat down and figured it out yet. The cost for me was in the controller, motors, drivers and power supplies. The framework and gantries were not very expensive. If I had to guess, I would say less than $1500...

    That's a rough idea, which was what I was curious about. I know things will vary, but a ballpark idea gives a person a budget to start with. Some of my projects have exceeded my guestimated budget by multiples of 5, so I like to be prepared.
