New to this community here i just thought i would share my experience. Overall the assembly instructions are well thought out and easy to follow if you don’t rush things. Having said that i did notice some minor issues.
- The video tutorials are great however having them for both methods would be greatly appreciated.
- In my kit (500mm version) the drag chain brackets i received were for the 1000mm kit. If this is the standard going forward you might want to include this in the instructions so you don’t have to 1/2 disassembly the cnc when you get to the installation of the actual drag chains.
- I noticed that the marker slides are now coming pre-tapped. This is great. However the holes on the end plates don’t line up perfectly and need some creative jiggling to get them in properly.
Anyway building this unit was a lot of fun and now off to start carving :).
For my fellow Canucks if you are having a hard time find collet adapters from a 1/4 shank to a 1/8th shank. I have found that lee valley sells a number of 1/4" shank router bits in the smaller cutting diameters. As well as bushing adapters.
