At Last, It's time to begin

Hi All,
I am an IT engineer working for a telecom in my country Cameroon in Central Africa. Indeed it is a pleasure for me to be part of this community. I have been around this forum for more than 10 years. I have read and read and read through this forum. Even though have have never build or used a CNC machine before, I feel confident that with the help and support from friends of this forum I will build a MechMate. I have bought 80 percent of what is needed so far.
********
the foot print of my machine is going to be 3300 x 2200.
It will run on Acorn boards and teknic motors. I purchased the laser cut parts already from Mike (Metal Head).
I will also mount a 4th axis according to the design of x-ray dude

All metal for the base frame has been bought.

I hope to post some pictures and give more details.

I count on the support and criticism of all. I am open to learn from those who have gone ahead and hope this will be another fun ride.

Hi Mike,
I will post as often as possible. At the moment, due to daily work and time constrain my progress is slow. My plan is to first start with the steel assembly since it is the most challenging aspect for me.
