I've decided to jump into this project with both feet, just not my wallet yet. I'll be doing all that I can without really spending any money for the first couple of months. I've looked through quite a few designs and I think that I have decided on which one I will be using, xy table with a over hanging z axis, probaly mostly from wood, with a working area of 12x12x6 inches. I like the fact that I'll be able to swap out an extrusion head with a dremel and use it as a CNC mill.Work table in the garage what a mess
Ubuntu setup in the garage, still need to install a wireless network card to get online to get all the software.
PCBs, I got a couple extra from RRRF.org Zach is running a great operation up in NY.
