I am extremely excited to be able to have the chance to get one of these tools into my collection. This is a 1000mm XL Shapeoko2 CNC router that I have been building up and modifying. This has been going on since the start of the warmer weather up here in Canada, now I finally have it to a point that I am ready to start tackling some harder project I have wanted to try.
But besides some teaser photos this post will just list the specs of the setup I have in place, and I will be making more in depth posts about detailed features such as the 3D printed cable chain or the custom designed mounts for the improved 1-1/4hp Rigid trim router. So keep checking in here from time to time as I get more information written up about this project itself and many others I will have coming!
Current machine specs:
All of this is sitting on top of a custom built 8′ x 4′ workbench I designed and measured in 3D than built a couple months back in one afternoon, total cost was about $100cad :) Let me know if you want to hear more on this workbench otherwise it is nothing fancy haha.
I have a couple more upgrades already done to the machine and the picture on this post is a few weeks old. I will be saving those for another post to talk a bit more in detail about them.
