I finally got it built! Actually, this is number 2. :)

The first machine wobbled and ran about 60 inches a minute. It was also a 4 by 4, but the gantry was a single screw drive under the table. I had more problems with the thing than anything. This new setup is much better! I also like the fact that the 5 start 1/2-10 screws can move VERY fast compared to the old setup.

I am using 4 Gecko drives, 50 volt 12 amp power supply from Antek and Mach 3 to run the setup. I am also looking in to the software from Vectric (VCarve Pro to be exact). I am excited to have this new setup and I am still working on it in the evenings and running it during the day for my business.
