DIY CNC router kit- Maslow router


GotAU?

Recommended Posts

Ive been wanting to CAD design and make some cabinetry and pull out shelves for the back of my truck, some wood signs, maybe a kayak and some other fun stuff with a CNC router, but the sizable ones for doing larger projects cost thousands, or so I thought.  I found this lower cost 8” x 4” sized CNC router kit called a Maslow CNC and just finished building it:

It uses two servo motors to pull the router around on the base board with chain, and it’s really precise.  There’s even a Z-Axis motor for automatic depth control on the router. I will be putting it to lots of uses soon...  uh- yes dear, after I finish those windows and paneling in my new worksho... er, I mean storage shed for your boxes! :inocent:

this is the brains for the motors- a Arduino driver board (green light) that runs from a small computer mounted to the back of the router easel.

Man that is figuring it out. Do you have any production pictures or finished product?

I recently completed building it and so far I was using it on a basic student designed project with my 6th grade technology students who are currently just learning to use a CAD program:

Oh yeah, for those of you who do metal fab, there’s options for a aluminum metal cutting modification and some even put a laser engraver and even a plasma cutter on it!
