This is my adaptation of the Mantis 9 CNC machine I found on the net. I scavenged some parts from my old Bluumax CNC Gantry Router I built, to make a better Z axis, as the one I had cut out was NOT straight in any way and I wasn’t too happy with the way it looked. I sacrifice some cutting area, but then again, this machine is not too big in the first place. I will probably only make Pendants, PCB’s, and misc little things with this machine. I figure it will be a good machine to cut my teeth on and learn CNC in general. I had The bluumax but I never took it very seriously to be honest.
