CNC 2020

This is a “2020B” kit. It’s made from PVC.

Assembly was pretty easy and fun so I highly recommend this kit to the right audience.

It’s an affordable kit but is more suitable for a person who is already familiar with CNC (and has a specific purpose for it like me) or someone who is technical and wants to learn about CNC.

A downside is that there is no cabinetry for electrical components. I may mount them to a board or something to keep it all together. Or perhaps a box. As things stand I’m just putting everything into a bin and laying it out to run the machine. The delay is that I wanted to run it for a while and validate the electronics before I box it up.

As it turns out I replaced the transformer-spindle-drive with a power supply and knob speed control. I think I’m now ready to box it up. Stand by for a report!

  • Is there a link to where you bought it?

    Thanks.

    • I just added a couple of youtube videos to the bottom of the post. One of them has the link to the one I bought. It’s on sale right now.
