In this video I embark upon the journey of building a CNC router machine. My goal is to use the machine to design and build kiteboards, surboards, and other similar products.

And I’m using Mach4 software to run the machine.
I started by buying and assembling the electronic components of the CNC machine. This is supposed to be the most daunting task in the process of building a CNC machine. It took me 2 weeks of tinkering around with the electronics to get the motors spinning and all the emergency stop equipment working correctly.
