My BuildYourCNC site inspired Machine

This site has peaked my interest and probed my excitement to build me a cnc router from scratch and available material mostly.
The machine working deminsions are roughly 55" x 33".
I have some salvaged NextStep microstepping drivers with a cheap Mach3 bob. Being the NextStep drivers are power supply integrated, I really liked these and also they were available to me. So I'm powering the logic with usb and runnin all of my switches with a small 12vdc powersupply.
I'm excited about adding pics and will add more to come!

Good work! What I like to tell folks at this point is that you are now officially kooler than all your friends. Looks like it really cramped up your workspace!

Looks really cool! Nice work!

BTW, did you weld that linear rail together to make a longer one? :) Maybe its just a smudge in the pic, but its something i would try so it intrigued me!!!
