    I decided I needed a better more powerful computer for the CNC, So I thought why not let the CNC do the work then :)

    Anyway the parts are as listed below

    Motherboard Asrock H61 MV-itx 1155 socket

    CPU intel 2500K

    HDD Seagate 750g Hybrid

    The rest is still undecided atm

    So to start a pic of the mobo and some sheet metal

    Instead of endless renders here's the CNC software picture

    I only have two things in my bag.
    That scribble on the plate doesn't have a single 90degree edge. I like that.:D

    Looking good.:D
    Is that groove a perfect fit for one of your metal trash cans, or do you have other plans?

    Yay, it's about time the devil made work for his idle hands! :p

    Assuming those two plates are going to be end caps, is the centre section going to be tube-like in appearance? :cooldude:
