    I need to make my own I was thinking of using epoxy granite, steel reinforced concrete. nothing fancy just solid and functional and cheap.
    I would use cast iron as a base. Inexpensive, easy to machine and good for vibration dampening.

    Every so often someone new comes on here and says all the buzz words to get everyone's shit hot. I'm not convinced it's not an active member fucking with us.

    Stepper motors, linux, open source, Dewalt router, DIY, etc.

    Same things all the other dumb fucks blather about when they want to make a machine out of popsicle sticks and rubber bands.

    Thought you said you didn't value money. Why aren't you giving them away for free as in beer?

    ROFLMAO. I have no clue why someone would want to create their own machine. Maybe they do not realize that you need a machine to create a machine.
    Has anyone here ever tried to build a machine with legos?

    There was a guy that posted pics of his miniature Lego machine shop! I think he had some rigidity problems though. LoLoL

    I wonder what organic compound this fruit was raised on.
    How is it helping people to unload some machine on them that has no parts support or technical support? Repairs and troubleshooting may seem trivial to the builder, but the poor guy who is trying to do something with it will be up shit creek when he tries to call you for help and you tell him you don’t work for “corporate shills” who are just in it for the money. Not everyone who wants to make simple parts should have to have multiple cross-discipline degrees in electrical, mechanical, and mechatronic engineering. Specialization is what allows people to concentrate on the things they are good at and enjoy.

    But to the point of actually building something like this: start by getting your hands on a functional machine first. Make some parts. See what it takes for the machine to hold whatever tolerance it’s capable of. And for gods sake, be careful to avoid any form of success or you will run the risk of becoming what you so desperately hate: profitable

    I think he and the others are the same AI platform, programmed to spew hateful retorts to anything that remotely disagrees with his (it's) trolling.
