5-Start Nut

The original 5-Sart nut is no longer available at CNCRouterParts. The replacement nut can be found here:

Dumpster ACME Nut Assembly (5-Start)

Note that his new nut requires some modifications to the build.  You can find out about them here:

ACME Nut Changes


Stand Update

Please note that the Rousseau stand is no longer manufactured.  There are alternatives out there but I recomend purchasing two Rockler 24" x 36" stands found here:

Rockler 24x36 Stand

Use the two kits to build one 36" x 36" stand and one 24" x 24" stand.  You can use the 36" x 36" stand to hold the CNC and the other as a small accessory or tool table.

Note as an option, you can just build two 24" x 36 tables and build the machine on top of them both.  Please not that the shelf panels will have to be sized to whatever stand you make.
