Inventables Shapeoko v2

We are looking at purchasing a Shapeoko v2 for the space from MakerSlide. Pledge opened: 26 October 2013

Pledge leader: Antaeus?

The item

The Shapeoko 2 is a simple, low cost, open source CNC milling machine kits that can be built over a weekend. This is version 2 of the fastest selling CNC machine in the history of the world. There is also further information about the machine, kits, kit contents and other things on this Inventables blog post. The machine as a whole is accurate but needs a good motor/chuck for the flexibility of what cutters can be used.

See this thread on London Hackspace mailing list.

Also needed

Possible suppliers

  • Mech kit etc. from a RepRap supplier on ebay
  • MakerSlide, currently have the kits without MakerSlide (the aluminum extrusion for the wheels to roll on). Nigel Worsley has offered to donate some.

Rough budget estimation

Total approximately £475 including delivery
