I expected to see it sometime this coming week and it came today! Thank you to Inventables for fast processing/Shipping!
An added bonus: FedEx only managed to maul one box! It was the 1000mm rail box. Hopefully, no damage is found when I open tomorrow.
My Wife said “Well, at least they didn’t put a FRAGILE label on it…that translates into “Kick Harder” in UPS/FedEx language.” lol.
Anyways, thanks again Inventables staff for a quick delivery.
Now the fun begins - the build!
Congrats! I’m a new owner too.
Highly suggest watching New Brit Workshop’s assembly vids on YouTube. He helped me a LOT in transforming a pile of boxes into a working machine.
Yes! I came across his vids & have him book-marked for tomorrow’s adventure.
Once you get your machines together check out my YouTube channel to help get you carving.
Yes Sir, I already did and already suscribed.
congratulations and welcome…
Congrats! I received my packages last Wednesday. Started assembling this morning. Think I am about half way done. Can’t wait to get it finished! Good luck with yours.
@JosephVandigriff. Awesome and welcome
I got mine together in about 12 hours. Had a problem with my WiFi but Inventables helped me load the g code without a network. The x carve is awesome!
Anyone need ziplock bags? I have a few, lol
Yeah, those ten pounds worth of ziplock bags is pretty daunting when you first lay 'em all out lol. I got maybe 3/4’s of the way built today? I’m guessing I’ll be buttoning up the build tomorrow.
Then, I have to throw a 20 amp breaker in the panel and run some 12-2 romex to a couple of receptacles because my Builder, in their infinite wisdom only ran 15 amp GFCI’s in the garage. I’ve got to build a work station table for it as well. I hope to be test driving it by Saturday/Sunday at the latest.
The day my Inventables came was a great day indeed, so I know how you feel. The build is the fun part, that is until you turn it on for the first time. Or maybe the fun starts when you do your first carve, or when you you do your first “add-on”.
The point is there is a LOT of fun headed your way with the X-Carve.
I used to wish I was younger so I had more time with pretty women, now I wish I was younger so I can spend more time with my X-Carve…
Welcome to the forum!
Best be careful your wife might be looking over your shoulder.
Congrats on buying an X-Carve and welcome to the forum. I purchased my X-Carve last year and also had to build a table for it. I built the table 4’ X 6’ and used the 2’ leftover piece to make a drawer. The drawer holds all my clamps, tools and extra parts. I designed the drawer pull and cut it our on the X-Carve. Good Luck with your X-Carve.
Thanks Russell, that table looks great. I too will be doing something along those lines as well. The bench it’s setting on in my pic is 4’ X 8’ and is my work bench / outfeed table for my table saw. It can’t stay there but was great to build it on as I had plenty of room for laying out the 15,000 ziploc bags lol.
I have a reload bench set up along one of the Garage walls and the new X Carve table would work perfectly in that location as it’s close to the Electrical panel, making my 20 amp circuit install easier. So, the reloading equipment is going inside to the Home Office the Wife & I share.
Thank you and you’re welcome. Your reloading equipment is something for both you and your wife so I’m sure she will let you have some extra space in the home office. Let me know how that works out for you. Good luck my friend.
Yeah, actually I’m going with the “better to ask forgiveness than permission” route and see if it works. After all, all that humidity is bad for the powder anyways right?!
