Needs a new waste board. I never bought the one from Inventables, I just bought a 4’x8’ sheet of 3/4 MDF from Lowes and cut it down to size for the machine. That way I got two waste boards for about $35 instead of paying $128 for the board and an additional $135 to ship it.

X-Carve has less than 10 hours of active use. I’ve been unable to calibrate it to get the kind of cuts I want and no longer want to spend the time to troubleshoot the machine. This type of machine needs a person who enjoys tinkering and repairing, I’m just not suited for it. Time to cut my losses.

Price for everything: $1000 firm

Unless you are absolutely deadset on selling, there are a few users around here that can get you running and get that machine dialed in.

I can guess the problems you are having and had them myself. It’s possible to get it running great with some common tweaks.

Is the X-Carve still available? I live in CT and would be very interested. Please let me know if there is a convenient time to speak on Monday.

Thank you for your offer, but I’m ready to sell. Members of the forum have been incredibly helpful with troubleshooting and Inventables has been wonderful about sending out missing parts (and later a malfunctioning gShield) extraordinarily quickly and hassle free. But I’m just not suited for a machine that needs this much care and attention.

I’ve had several interested people contact me already, and I think it’s best for me to return to more traditional saw-dust makers while sending off this tool to someone who can give it the love it needs and make it sing.

Thanks again!
