    I thought about casting the parts, but right now its faster just to machine them. Maybe later on if there is interest in kits i will make patterns and cast them. Who knows, alot of "if's"

    Is that a small makita router attached to the grizzly mill? I ask because I am making a cnc router and I will be using that same model of router. How is it working out for you? I find mine works quite nicely when I use it by hand, especially compared to the bosch colt I had for a few days. The collet on the colt was flimsy and the router got really hot.

    I only use it with tiny endmills. Like .010" endmills. Works like a champ, smooth and quiet.
    Im very happy with it. Theres some more posted about in my vicky build thread, under non metallic fabrication.
