I wasn't limited to finding a piece and making it fit. I didn't really need a lot of big tools to make 80/20 work for me.
avid used 80/20 parts and profiles to build this custom CNC machine for his home workshop. David turned to 80/20 specifically because of how easy it is to use. He didn't have steel and welding resources or large machining tools; with 80/20 products he can cut on my chop saw which opened up another door for me.

or building the CNC machine David knew he needed something that was better and more stablesomething industrial but adjustable which didn't require nails or shooting screws.
his CNC router is comprised mainly of 10 series extrusions; even the legs are made of 80/20 profiles! The legs are 15 series and cut to about 2 to 3 inches and connected with a corner bracket that David cus- tom drilled. Another benefit he enjoys by building with 80/20; the choic- es and options in fasteners and connecting methods. David notes that by utilizing 80/20 to build a CNC machine for his home he has added the capacity to cut aluminum which has opened up a whole new world.
