Inventables Shapeoko v2

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

Pledge leader: New leader needed

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.
