Frank Pirz documented the build of his CNC machine which is based these plans. It was interesting to see that the 80/20 Aluminum was cut using a simple miter saw. The electronics case is a old computer case which is exactly what I also did, purchasing a large electrical box is quite expensive and computer cases are plentiful. Unlike most things, the older the case the better since older cases are built like a tank the modern ones are built like the tin foil wrapped around a baked potato. The end machine appears to be very stable and has a nice beefy look.
