    I have the plans for this. A lot of thought has gone into the design with many of the design decisions covered. It is constructable using hand tools.

    I would think the whole lot could be done for less than $1000au

    some substitution would be needed for metric stock in Australia as there is no imperial aluminium available in the sizes listed.

    There is a sub forum on Cnc zone for this router design.

    Hi Ryan, tried to find the price of the plans, but couldn't find it, how much are they please? Is it a relatively simple build?

    I would say it is a simple build.
    from the construction photos and documentation included in the 178page plan set I can see the following tools used

    circular saw
    small trimmer router (which later becomes the spindle) (these can be had for as little as around $50 I think)
    g clamps and a section of aluminium straight edge to use as a cutting guide
    squares and rulers
    drill bits
    hole saw
    f clamps
    screwdriver
    soft jaws and a vice
    scribe
    marking texta
    drop saw with aluminium cutting blade and lubricant
    appropriate tap and tap wrench
    locktite 271
    allen keys
    spaners
    hacksaw
    stuff to complete the wiring
    multimeter
    feeler gauge
    files

    I would say a drill press would be needed as well, however I cant drill a straight hole to save my life!

    basically if you cut aluminium/steel section to length, drill and tap you will be ok
