What are you using as a driver and controller?
I picked up an Arduino GRBL driver recently but haven't been able to play with it yet.

Very nice.  Aluminum lowers are indeed cheap, but the wooden lower deserves a better attempt than soft pine, 3 shots though it did achieve.

Pretty cool . Does this have enough depth of cut to make parts? Posibilities could be interisting

I am already tired of this one and started work on a new one.

Steel this time.

Seems like picture upload is failing.
