Am I the only one that has had an uncontrollable urge to constantly refresh your emails and forum to find a shipping announcement for the xcarve? I put my order in 2 weeks ago, and ever since I’ve spent hours refreshing pages and emails haha. I can’t be the only one!
hahaha likewise, I put my order for the new X-Carve 1000mm in about a month ago or so and can’t get off the forums
count yourself lucky, I ordered my x-controller on june 2nd and am still waiting on the email…
June 5th here. I’ve seen some from May have gotten their orders shipped but I guess not to June yet.
July here… i haven’t slept since mid-September…
I have bought a bunch of Bit’s, I’ve bought the Suckit dust collector, and I’ve cleaned out my shed, insulated it, and put plywood up. I’ve started building my worktables for the shed also and installed an A/C… Got a dust collector in my birthday list for the Wifey, added wifi range extender to reach the shed, and a few more things all to get ready for the arrival of my X-Carve
Ordered my X-Controller May 22. Still no email for me.
I keep hitting refresh as well but I won’t give them too much grief. I ordered on 8/31 for the whole 1000mm kit. I’m sure it’s coming though.
nope your not the only one ive ordered mine about 2 months ago iv’e been checkin my emails and forums errrrryyyyyy day hahahaha im so keen cant wait. well its late september lol
Only if you have a little talent.
are these maintenance videos on the site somewhere? and would they also work for the newer xcarve?
For those of you that are waiting for the carve, get ready for some headaches. Especially if you don’t have patience. Is gonna take you a while to get it to work the way you want it. It took me like 4 months or so to get it to run just right.
I even gave up on it for like 2 weeks and I was ready to sell it. But I kept coming back to the forum and with the help of some topics from the guys I went back to it and finally got it going. So, don’t give up on it! Keep trying and keep coming back to the forum and hopefully you won’t be disappointed. So good luck to all of you and welcome to the club!
I bought a new spindle, table saw, miter saw, planner, and some other wood working hand and power tools. If thats not a sign of addiction I do not know what is…
already done haha
Im just sharing my opinion, you can agree or disagree, thats fine with me. You had more patience and probably more knowledge than me. But either way, this machine will be a headache to some people, maybe not to all obviously but to some it will. That doesn’t mean that is a bad machine. Like you said, they need to take their time and do a lot of research to get it going just right. But like we all do, all we want to do is put it together and start carving right away, but you know that will not be the case. Some might get lucky and some will struggle like me like and some other guys, and of course, there will be the ones that can put it together in a heartbeat and dial it in right away because maybe thats what they do . But hey, let them be the judge of that. Im just giving a heads up and trying to encourage them not to give up on it like I almost did.
Lol… yep, Ordered my 1,000mm full kit on 8/30 and have found my self looking at things differently… walking through Home Cheapo, I see a blank for the top of a railing piece and think, this would look cool with a carved … then saw a 24" circle, that is most likely for the top of a stool, and thought, this would make an awesome clock… LOL. So I quickly made a 48’ x 48" rolling table for the xcarve in preparation of it’s arrival. Completely new to this whole thing, so I am sure I will post a bunch of boneheaded mistakes… but it’s a new skill that will take some learning to get used to. Seems like a great group of people on here that is more than willing to help everyone, so that makes me feel better!
Ordered a 750mm to give it a try. 1000mm won’t fit in my workspace
Just curious – why’d everyone choose this over the Shapeoko 3?
support is reported to be much better than shapeoko - that’s my reason anyway.
Just to officially chime in - ordered 2.0 1000mm the day it went live - no email yet
Well now they officially have 24 hours before they have to change it from “late September” to “early October”
