Re: I made some blueprints 2 years ago...and now
Totally worth the money. The only problem is sometimes Nate (Fine Line Automation) can sorta disappear...there was a span of about 5 months where I couldn't get him to reply to text, phone, or email and I was waiting on replacements for incorrect parts. But he always comes back eventually and makes it right.
Overall I think I've put about $2600 if not a little more into the machine.
It doesn't come with anything except fasteners/screws, aluminum extrusion, steel rails, linear carriages, plates, Rack & Pinion drives/tracks, and a lead screw for the Z Axis. You have to order the motors and G540 separately, as well as the cable chains. Limit switches are also not included (nor are mounting plates for them) so I had to go to cncrouterparts for the switches and home depot to find a way to put them on lol
The T-tracks and hold down clamps I got directly from Rockler and cut the slots using the machine and my computer to jog the router down the paths I had drawn out on the spoilboard.
I made my initial purchase of the machine February 2014 and literally just got it fully ready to cut about a week ago. Partly due to work constraints and partly due to Nate disappearing on me for almost half a year lol
Anyhoo, the wood I ordered should be here on Feb 3. I work literally all week that week but hopefully Saturday by end of day, I will have a "Jem style" body to show off!
