Well, when I got home from work today, I found a large box waiting for me on the doorstep. From the holes I could tell that it was the long awaited kit from Joe of Joe's CNC. It had been pretty badly treated during shipping. Opening the box revealed a sea of packing peanuts and lots of little pieces.
I freed the pieces from their fluffy white tomb and began to sort them out. I have not yet done a full inventory, so at this point I'm just hoping that no little bits escaped through the gaping hole FedEx was kind enough to add to the box. Hopefully I will have some time this weekend to begin assembly.
I also got all the parts for the computer (no pics, it's just a computer) to run the whole machine. It's assembled and humming along nicely.
