Here is a video of my brother and I putting our open build OX cnc machine together. This video shows some of the issues we had when we got all the parts. We got the machine from Hobby-Fab, which I believe in the past couple weeks has went under since their website no longer works.
My machine is 1500mm x 1500mm. I made it on a fold up work bench, since my wife would probably be angry if she couldn't park her car in the garage anymore. lol
So far everything works great. I had to tweak a few things here and there. Like the step off from the limit switch for the x axis to allow it to home without throwing alarms and some other minor things.
The power box for the machine uses a raspberry pi with a built in bcnc program to control the machine using gcode.
