    Would not be as pretty, but more available to "college kids" who are strapped for cash.. Post these drawings on this site.

    PUTTING OX plates, A pdf "TRUE TO SIZE" template up with cross hairs locating & labeling the holes, Print on any printer, tape to aluminum plate flatbar, 6" and 8" wide, center punch cross hairs, drill on a "normal" drill press.. built your first CNC to build other cnc's with, or?? I used to do IC chips the same way, print them with autocad 9 1:1 size, then drill right through the paper, etch board, solder in sockets and go on..

    My first cnc with openbuilds Xtreme rollers is real close to working.. Mine is a tool, not as pretty as your "OX", but a tool to work and make me things. (Heck, I am no handsome devil either)
