www.Buildyourcnc.com. It's a low-price kit ($1700) with a big 20" by 24" inch build area. I have found some of the directions are a little hard to understand because the part they sent does not look like the one they talk about, but I am able to figure it out. I should have it done in the next few days if all goes well. I will post a video of it running its first cut/engrave when it's running.

I have always wanted a Segway, but the price is out of my range for play money. So of course I decided to make one. I started on this 3 years ago and couldn't get it to turn the wheels so I put it in the corner and said I will get back to it later. Last year I saw someone else's DIY Segway at the Tulsa Mini Maker Faire and this got me thinking I should finish mine. Well, that was July of last year and I'm finally finishing this project. I talked to the guy that made the one at the Tulse Faire and he mentioned that the wheelchair motors I was using may not be fast enough to make the thing stable so for my birthday I purchased 2 Razer scooters as mentioned in the Instructables. Here is where I'm at so far.
