Cyclone PCB cnc

I've been a little sidetracked with a cnc build lately.  This is a wonderful first cnc project using a standard Arduino Mega 2560 with Ramps 1.4, running Marlin as the gcode controller.   I printed the parts in a combination of black PLA and red ABS. Printed on a modified Prinrbot simple maker's edition. 
  This is the cyclone v2.1 pcb cnc which is located at
 I managed to build it before there were a detailed instruction file.  But they have recently added it to:
 There is also a support group located at:!forum/cyclone-pcb-factory
   I'll try and post a video of it cutting some shapes in to plexiglass on the next few days.  Be sure to print the gears out of ABS since PLA will not last more than a few runs.
