Hi Perry,

I am thinking of building a MM as well, can you tell me what you sent to the Laser Cutters etc, I haven't had any dealings with with laser cutters before so any info you could provide would be good.

Thanks Sean

Hello to all of you WA Mechmate makers.

I am very interested in making a Mechmate.I have just downloaded the drawings.I work at Boddington and live in Albany so I dont have a lot of spare time however I would be very interested to be involved in a bulk purchase of motors Controllers etc.
I am going to set up my el cheapo laser printer and whip it hard printing up the drawings.
Regards Whitworth
