1st Sketch

My idea is to make it possible to make a CNC mill for PCBs in a FabLab at an as low as possible cost (less than 100€).

I still haven't totally decided about what materials to use but I have the idea of using wood to make the structure as it's cheap, easy to find and also can be machined in the lab. For the movement of the axes I plan to use stepper motors and a brushless motor for the spindle.

Because the machine is not going to take much forces as it's meant to be just for PCBs I decided to move the copper plate rather than the head of the machine.
