    Looks Great!

    I hope you will post a video of it in motion after you get it finished. I am also building a C-beam based router an considered the 8mm screws, but in the end I choose to use 1/2" 5 start acme screws instead. There has been some discussion about the 8mm screws being "fast" enough to use on a decent sized machine. I wasn't sure either way and decided in favor of what I had used before.

    More pics please. I love to see how others build their controller case.

    The controler case isn't finished either once the machine is running. I plan on cutting alot of pieces for the case. I would like to see your screw setup
