Ultimate way to get CNC parts

I got a hold of a photocopier today. One heck of a piece of a equipment to move and thank goodness it had casters. It didn’t work but It wasn’t for that reason but to strip it down for the stepper motors, glide rails, bushings, bearings and other misc stuff. I ended up with a life time supply of screws, 10 stepper motors that are a mixture of four and five wire. Three of them are perfect for the CNC unless I go with a belt and gear system.

So if you are like me and want to build a custom CNC your best bet is to get a hold of a photocopier. You’ll end up with enough parts and bits to build a couple of them.
