For the most part. The only thing I have left is figuring out the power. Not sure if I wanna put a double gang box with outlets or if I’m just going to put a surge protector on the back. Still thinking that through. Thank you for all the help throughout this build!!
Nice! You’re on your way now.
Is it staying in the house?! Even with dust collection, that’d be a hard no for me.
Lol, I wish!! I have Air conditioning in the house
Ahhhhh, what’s a little sawdust. Lol
Congrats on finishing the build and welcome to the forum.
So, what are people using to secure it to a work surface? I would have thought it would come with rubber feet or brackets or something…
I do have those . I was talking about securing the X-Carve to my Workbench
I watched a video of a guy leveling and tramming his XCarve and he screwed It to the table. That’s what I did mine, I secured it to the table using screws and then took a skim off the waste board to level everything.
My x-carve just sits on the bench I made. Not screwed down … which I was always going to do but never did and now don’t see the point.
Sorry guys, I did not screw mine to the table. I see no need. It has been sitting on the table for about 2 1/2 years without issue. I can’t see where it would cause any problem screwing it to the table, I just can’t justify the need to do so.
I bought extra Inventables plates and hardware, and screwed it to my bench. I’ll snap a picture in a minute for you. My machine is as deep as my tables and I am a klutz, so I went the extra mile. To each his own.
Thanks for the reply’s guys. I appreciate the help!!
That’s a great idea. Did you notice a big difference in movement or vibration?
It’s been under there since day one.
The machine is on a metal workbench, so I just thought it would be prudent just in case.
It absolutely does not move.
Did you drill all the holes in your aluminum waste board?
That’s a lot of holes.
