YOUR OWN WORKSHOP ROBOT—AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

Nothing improves efficiency in a wood- or metalworking shop—or almost any small manufacturing concern—like a CNC (computer numerical control) robot. But if you’ve priced one, you know the cost is a whopping $7,500 or more. Even plans on the Internet are expensive — and you can’t tell if they suit your needs until you’ve forked over hundreds of dollars.

NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME YOU CAN GET COMPLETE DIRECTIONS FOR BUILDING A CNC WORKSHOP BOT FOR A TOTAL COST OF AROUND $1,500!

CNC Robotics gives you step-by-step, illustrated directions for designing, constructing, and testing a fully functional CNC robot that saves you 80 percent of the price of an off-the-shelf bot—and that can be customized to suit your purposes exactly, because you designed it. Written by an accomplished workshop bot designer/builder, this book gives you:
* Start-to-finish illustrated instructions
* Guidance on installing easy-to-understand Windows software for controlling your bot
* Plenty of time-saving tips, tricks, and pictorial help along the way
* Scaling and customizing instructions for building just the robot that you want
* Sources for easily obtained parts
* A complete course in workshop bot design and construction, perfect for courses or industry

BUILD YOUR OWN WORKSHOP BOT AND BRING SPEED, PRECISION, AND AUTOMATION TO YOUR WORKBENCH OR ENTERPRISE.
