I haven't got into this one to deep yet, I will say that it appears to cover the building of a home brew CNC plotter/router or other. he doesn't cover to many of the tool holding options. But it should be an easy enough work around.
From rolling your own printed circuit boards, and getting the use out of ready made parts used for other stuff. It looks like it is complete text book on the subject. with out a lot of the extra stuff people who know put in books for people that don't know.
He also covers the file creation and programing of it to.

Tab is the same one as the old electronic book clubs from the &70's
only now it is owned by McGraw-Hill.
