I've got a little Grizzly G0704. So far have the X and Y converted. I was hoping to get some downtime in all of this pandemic stuff to wrap up the Z...but I'm busy as ever with work.

I also have two Gerber Dimensions 200E routers. One lives with a buddy in Hampton and the other is currently living the good life at another friends garage...because I'm out of space

Where do you shop for metal stock?
I use local shops. Here in Mooresville I use Stock Car Steel for most general alum and steel. Being in the middle of NASCAR and race country, lots of drops and hand me down metal that works fine for my little projects.

What are some of the things you've made/modified?
With my mill, mostly little brackets, or machining flanges and such for little one-off things.

Got any great sites or youtube channels you view for help/tips/ideas?
There several guys on youtbue and instagram that I like even if not directly related. You'll see a lot of support for the Shapeoko router style mill.

Winston Moy, who now has a job with Carbide 3D

Piotr Fox with his homemade granite mill. I seriously now want to make one.

Physics Anonymous also has some good, related content.

Instagram wise I like Vince.Fab and how far off the deep end he has gone with modding a Shapeoko.
