Hmmm........ i thought i already posted that here !
Can not find it, so i will chalk that to getting old.
Build it last year, sold it very cheap, they built a huge metal construction made completely of round tubes, was in use 20 hours every day for nearly 3 months, still working and in use with a modified/prolonged Y axis.
Leme check again and post where it belongs, after punishing myself with a pizza. :)

Hmm, Pizza and Coke! No wonder the torso in that photo has a bit of a beer gut!

Thats becasue there are more calories in Coke than Beer! I always prefer beer as it healthier! :unsure: :laugh:

Little late to the party but I'm Stefan C with the website in the OP. I started here a few years back with Tommy helping me out with that proma config on a small 2x2 build. Posted the build on youtube to show some friends and family and things sort of spiraled from there. I did a few more builds and ended up with the website to try and share some of the common questions I was getting. The website is a bit neglected as I've been posting a bunch on Instagram but I'll get it updated at some point.

Photobucket was complaining about my bandwith so most of my pics came down but i'll attach them here.
Photos:
Original 2'x2' build
Larger 4'x2' build similar to the the 2'x2'
Low dollar build 4'x2' with belts and cheap linear rails
Big HD 4'x4' for me to keep
Lighter Duty 4'x4' based on my HD table.

Ended up swapping out the parallel port cards on my HD table to the 7I96 and adding an air scribe. Just got my steel yesterday for a new 5'x5' build similar to the lighter duty table. I do this mainly in my spare time as a hobby to grow my skills as a fabricator and learn to hack around in HAL. I've switched to using the Mesa 7i96 boards for everything since they have plenty of I/O. External THCs I use the PriceCNC THC and did some testing with the THCAD10 which worked quite nice. With the big HD table I've been designing my own carriage plates and built everything for the lighter duty table with the HD 4x4.
