Sharpie Mod for Handibot

So I modded my Handibot to accept a Sharpie. Yes you read that right, I figured out a way to make my Handibot draw with a marker. I totally see the irony into turning my CNC router into a printer...

I think this is a great way to teach people CNC.. It's quiet, fairly safe and way less expensive if you jam a marker into material. Plus, it's really fun to watch!

See the post and video here:

Just be sure to turn off your router before you hit go! I dyed the inside of my handibot red when I was testing my attempt at a plotter pen...This is a really clever way to solve the problem of the collet being too small to fit any readily available marker; nice!
