Just to let you guys with strong currencies know this.
There is a company that supplies CNC router kits that are ideal for the BFM cabinets and boy are they inexpensive.You can use your standard router in it and they have a very good name according to my research. You can order just about any size you like.You just have to put together the steel table bed.
The one I will be getting will take a 4x8 sheet of ply.
I have been trawling the net for a machine, the used ones here are all too expensive and really there is no need for a very high production CNC.

GO check them out on the net. http://www.makerslide.co.za

The Shapeoko is a nice machine!
Lay my eyes on it,too!

You´ll get a really big machine, hope you got some supports to stiffen your X axis? :)

Please keep this updated, i´ve got three nema 23 steppers/Controller/power supply laying around, just waiting to be put on a shapeoko!

Btw, how much did you pay for your (really) big machine?
