    Is that machine used for cutting projector components designed by you or a borrowed one ?

      It’s a CNC machine that the WSU Robotics club put together while I was there. We had found an old 3-axis CNC platform gathering dust in the robotics lab there, and decided to do something useful with it. So, we bought some stepper motors, a controller, a wood router and some other bits – then we* put it all together, and we had a CNC machine!

      *(and by “we”, of course, I mean Nick – the same brilliant mechanical engineer as was responsible for the rover platform for Eddie)
