Let's Make Robots!

Hackerspace and other things

I have been away for a while again :(.  But right now I am sitting at my desk sick as a dog.  I felt I should take this time to update my LMR.  I haven't been able to post my current projects on this site because of this.  Saskatoon TechWorks, a new hackerspace community that has been established.  This means that I will be able to share my knowledge and tools with other like minded individuals.  As an added bonus, I get to use awesome tools as well.

This is "Goliath".  A large format CNC router.  I will be able to cut larger parts faster than the sherline.  I am excited and hope to share the fruits of my labours with you guys.  TTFN

Well, it looks like I am building a similar machine. I am just in the "reading forums" stage and doing some pricing. I am using the size of Goliath as a point-of-reference and I was curious as to the size of your motors. The are nema 34's it seems, are they the 892oz/in units?

These are the ones we used:

Pricing for ours was around 3000
