    Hi All,

    It’s great to see such a thriving community of DIY CNC on this forum. I’m in no way new to CNC as I did an toolmaking apprenticeship 20years ago although I’ve been working in construction for the last 12 years. I am new to the DIY CNC world and I’ve got space in the garage so looks like I’m going to be hooked.

    End game is as the images…

    So ideally, fast feed speeds,  rigid and full sheet. I also want to have a go at 3d printing replacement parts etc.

    I need advice…MPCNC (modified) with rail supports vs Lowrider 2?

    Hell yes. Those are some cool projects.

    No question, the low rider is needed for full sheets.

    Speed, less emphasis on this one. A full sheet router and a 3D printer are not really very compatible. Much much better off having one of each in this case.

    I really need to reread my posts before I submit. Too many errors for my liking🙄 Also, if anyone out there reading is near Oxford, UK and fancies a meet to to discuss DIY CNC let me know.

    Yup pretty much…That is how the LR2 came about. Make a CNC, use it to make a giant one if you really need it.

    High five buddy!

    I’m with everybody else, no competition, the Low Rider is by far the best choice if you’re going to work on projects that size.
