To Preface: This project is not my own, this is entirely based off of Tinkernut's own original work that can be found here and in this video. I am just sharing my build and experience here on Hackaday.
Now, with that cleared up, lets move on to the applications of the project. For a very low (If not even free) cost, one can make a fully functional CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine from unused parts that are just taking up space and not being useful. It is a great alternative for those of us that can't quite afford a 3D printer, laser engraver, cutter or milling machine with our budget as makers and pulls the ends of frugality, making, and learning together well.
