Let’s get things rolling

My first goal with this site is to get info up on building the shapeoko kit. What is it? An inexpensive CNC milling machine.

I’ve managed to start with the basic $200 mechanical only kit. From there I bought the parts, scavenged from the junk bin, etc. and got the unit working.

Wanting to use Linux, I rewrote a neglected cross-platform gcode sending tool, which has been posted to github.

I am now in the middle of using the shapeoko on one of my projects, a rebuild of an old dobsonian telescope.
