After doing so many upgrades to my machine that I basically cloned it, I decided to rebuild the original and sell it. The machine is a custom “expanded” version of a 500mm machine, expanded to 500 x 650. Has many new parts, including:
- X carriage
- Spindle carrier (DeWalt 611 size)
- All new electrics (motors, switches, wiring)
- Drag chain
Additionally, it comes with the following upgrades:
- Gates 9mm belts
- 15mm Z drive belt
- Heavy-duty lower corner braces with large rubber isolators
Also comes with a set of plates that will put you within $200 of a full screw-drive conversion. I have pre-drilled the bottom of the X-carriage for the drive nut, which will save a ton of potential disassembly/reassembly time. For an additional $30 I will include a set of plates that will put you within another $200 (ish) of a full MGN12 linear rail conversion. This conversion requires some custom made angle brackets, which I will provide the drawings for, and the STL file for the custom side-covers.
This machine is essentially “new” condition. It will include a partial waste board (solid oak) with 1/4-20 threaded inserts installed. Price is $600 with local pick-up only. Sorry, but I don’t have the time or inclination to mess with shipping.
This is an identical size machine with screw drive & linear rail upgrades:
