Still collecting materials..in Southern Ont., Canada

Got the plans about two weeks ago, and had a chance to review them - and read through some of the forum posts.

I plan on buying the precut and prebent steel kit available in Canada, so that should help with sourcing the most troublesome parts.

Might have it started before christmas!

The biggest piece of advice I can give you is read first then build. There is a lot of tweaks that different people make that can make a drastic difference on the direction of your build. It would be wise (I didn't do it and had to make changes after). Welcome to the forum.

I started to build a CNC without any plans. MeshMate plans were purchased after the table was constructed. Now I plan on making changes to the table so that it is closer to the MeshMate Plans. You mentioned in your post that you could buy the parts pre'cut in Canada ? If so could you please provide your source. I live in Acton, not too far from you.

If you had read the plan & the forum, you won't have to ask where to get any parts.
