One of the newest tools in Frank’s shop is a CNC Router Parts industrial-grade CNC cutting machine. This router and plasma cutter is actually a kit that you can put together, and we go through that process with the help of CNC Router Parts’ Drew Cairns. During the assembly, we learn how this machine was designed and see its capabilities in the making of some cool furniture! Next up, plasma cutting!

sayeb salah says:

why didnt you make a full size water bed , lower it a bit and cover it with a full sized removeable router table?

Luke Tillotson says:

I wish I had 15k for one of these

Cornpop says:

I used to work for a major Japanese CNC mfg for machining, mainly metal. I have also worked with many other industrial CNC machines during my lengthy career. Every single one of them, considered the longitudinal direction, the X-axis. What they are calling the gantry, would be the Y-Axis. It's kind of tomAto tomato, but it just seems strange that these and some other router machines have X and Y swapped – VS the machining world. I will say that the structure and the mechanisms look really well done, for an extrusion based machine.

Another thing, the Japanese company I worked for made very large CNC mills (machining centers) which had ball screws for axes over 16ft and we had no issues with ball-screw whip. Why? Because those ball-screws were over 3" in diameter. They were also hollow and had chilled oil running through them. As well, they had followers, whose job it was to keep the ball-screw centered. I'm not saying he's wrong, just saying that what he said does not apply to all calibers of machine.

Ive been shopping and it looks like the parts cost more than a machine.

There's nothing but fake praise for the production of a commercial in the comments. And I came to see Adam. Not these ordinary idiots.

Floyd Darryl says:

How do I get a machine like this

David A Loving says:

I am interested in a SMALL hobby cnc machine that would make little circuit boards (4" X 5" biggest) on one sided copper/ fiberglass. Do you have any suggestions? Please keep them under $ 800..Thanks.

Steven Livingston says:

Can you send a web site
For purchase

AgentMrBig says:

I guess its now Avid cnc. The machines are WAY overpriced. Just source the parts yourself and build one. OR Langamire systems has a plasma cnc about half the price.

Eric Renner says:

I am installing a very similar system. Can you tell me how you were able to get the dust covers between the two z-axis installed without taking any of the z-axis' apart?

Hamd Ada says:

arthur horwedel says:

Great questions and Drew was excellent at explaining. Thanks guys

Mike Kuhnkey says:

So, This was a "one-time" build that never made it into a popular configuration? Where did it go? Priced it out at little under $18K!

Enrique Gonzalez says:

Why to use that kind of "lego" pieces to assembly this kind of machines???

Barada Guitars says:

I had to watch 4 Ads to be able to watch this ad !!

Server Surfer says:

Norm: So, now you have to calibrate it?
Drew: spends four minutes explaining the calibration process
Norm: Okay, so… yes, you have to calibrate it. nods understandingly

daniel butts says:

What are the advantages of using a belt drive versus a direct drive from a stepper motor?

Artnovetor says:

Muito bom parabéns 👏👏👏

besi art says:

For 15k you can do better, way better cnc’s out there ,problem is probably the support because of china.
