I’m in the final stages before placing an order for the 1000mm X-Carve. I’ve read a lot of the forum posts trying to learn what I can to make sure I order the right items. Shipping to Canada will be expensive (plus the exchange rate!) so I hope to get it right the first time.
I will be ordering the X-Controller instead of the stock power supply and motion controller. This will take longer than getting the X-Carve items but that’s fine.
During assembly I plan to stiffen the maker slides for the axes and to use shrink wrap, cable wraps and use locking connectors wherever seems appropriate.
I’ve read lots about the belts slipping - any recommendations for improvements?
It seems that lots of people don’t like the eccentric nuts and/or have issues with alignment , etc. so I’m hoping to instead use eccentric spacers and nylock nuts. Anyone have a parts list of the number and size of the spacers, nuts and (longer) screws that will be needed? Any comments or suggestions?
Are there other mods/upgrades you would consider mandatory? Best dust shoe, etc.?
