Now we'll wire up each of the EasyDrivers. Remove some of the interior wire from the Cat5 and strip the ends. For each servo you will need two normal pairs of white/colored and one oddball of a white and two colored. In all, you'll have to strip 14 ends. PCB soldering is easy, once you get used to it. There are many other tutorials that cover the subjct. How to wire an arduino-based 3-axis CNC machine
My final project is a 3-axis CNC milling machine that costs less than $100 (currently $87) to build. It can mill PCBs, wood, and even mild steel. These PCBs were milled using the machine. The traces are 10-15 mils. MAS 863 - David Carr
Here is a way to make a computer controlled milling machine. That puts the real power of a computer control machining into the hands of the average human. Small enough to set on the desk but scalable to any size. As inexpensive as possible without sacraficing accuracy (too much). All most all the parts can be purchased in local retail stores.
