    Great job, really looks professional. Do you know where your friend got the servo motor/gearbox. I'd like to try and build one for my mill.

    It's from an industrial robotic co. he used to work for but there are several alternatives on ebay. This one 24v. Look @ garage door opener motors, these have a cool built in clutch, they are similar to wiper motors. Hope this helps, cheers
