Purchasing the Plans

Email info is at the bottom of this page.

Begin the purchasing process by clicking a "Buy Now" button in the tables on this page. This will automatically redirect you via E-Junkie, the digital downloading service, to the PayPal site.

Once the payment details have been completed, a link to the download will be given via the website and in an email.
(Make sure that your PayPal email address is correct.)

The download link is active for 24 hours. Email me for a fresh link if needed.

When you click the download link, a box similar to the example below will open.

In the box, click the "Save File" option, and then click the OK button.
The file will not save to your computer if the "Save File" button is not clicked.

Download Notice

After the file is downloaded, an "Open Folder" button may appear in the download box. Click the button to be taken to the folder that contains the plans. Then click the plan's name to open the file.

The file may automatically be saved to your computer's "Downloads" folder, but it may be saved in another folder. This can make the downloaded file challenging to find.

When the file is not easily found, use your computer's search feature to find the file.

In the example above, the search term could be 13x13, and the search window would list files with 13x13 in their name. Click on the file name in the search list to open it.


Digital Plans Information

The digitally delivered plans are PDF documents that have been compressed so they can be downloaded over most internet connections. There are hundreds of images in the plans, so the plans' file sizes are larger than typical ebooks.

The compression has been pushed as far as possible before it severely affects image quality.

The downloaded plans can be printed and copied for your own use. The plans are edit locked and have a unique transaction number printed on the margin of each page.

Template Information

The templates in the plans are scaled for US standard 8-1/2 x 11 inch printer paper.

Some printers may alter the original sizes. This can be corrected in the printer's dialogue box by setting the margins to none, and/or by changing the print scale settings.
The dimensions are printed on the templates, so the templates can still be used as guides when the print scaling is incorrect.

All plans, except the 13x13, include templates.
The files are delivered from Amazon's S3 web storage service, which is usually fast.

The download times will vary greatly due to network traffic and the local internet connection.

NOTICE:  That which makes CNC machines useful also makes them dangerous; they move without direct human control.
A CNC table MUST have an easily accessible Emergency Stop button. The table must be in a safe location where it is inaccessible to children and unauthorized users; these are not toys, even a small machine can inflict serious injury. You, the user of these plans, assume all liability and responsibility for the construction process and the product you create.
