EDM 3 axis CNC machine

I got myself an 3 axis CNC machine from local machine manufacturer EDM OÜ. Since I focus mostly on electronic design I got a small hobby machine. It has Nema stepper motors, chinese parallel port stepper controller and 300W DC spindle. Controller is LinuxCNC and g-code is made with MeshCAM. I used it to cut polycarbonate and polyethylene pieces of a prototype.

After using it for a while I accidentally managed to destroy axis of the spindel motor. Since I needed to cut more plastics I ordered new 800W air cooled AC spindle. New spindle worked much better and quieter.
