    Thanks Ken!
    Made a few more test cuts today before I cut these out of aluminum.

    It's an Openbuilds C-Beam kit but all it comes with is just the frame. No other hardware or electronics.
    I made everything else for it including the power box and controller mounts, z-probe, fan mounts, wiring, switches, buttons, limit switches etc.

    NEMA 23 motors
    24v powersupply
    Spark CNC X-Pro V3 controller
    Fusion360
    Universal Gcode Sender
    Dewalt DP611 router with 1/4 and 1/8 collets

    They usually have a really good BlackFriday sale. That's how I got mine a few years ago. Was too good of a deal.
