    Here's a great project for a V-Slot or OpenRail based machine!

    It looks like they are using a Stewart style platform but I would rather see this in an enclosed box style gantry with plexi sides. This would allow us to add a water damping bath under the machine for the sparks.
    Who's going to be first to build this one :)

    Thanks for the link Jovian
