    Hi Mark, IS there a Makita adapter that fits the Dewalt one you sell in your store ? Or are you planning to having one ?

      Hello @dennisn8tkk we do not have an adapter available on the Part Store as of yet. But in the mean time you could 3D print one. There are a few different ones in the Resources that may help

    You printed some parts for others making the Delta Six Build,I have a cheep "prusa", and need some knowledge. What are you using Pla, Abs? I have been trying print vertices using ABS and they warps every time. I have a heated bed I have used Glue Bluetape Brims Rafts, Normally I would print out of PLA but, I am worried that the Steppers will warm up and warp the part? Any guidance would be appreciated.

    hey Ryan,

    I was looking into your OX CNC kit and it is looking very promising for his price. But i was wandering, can it be easily upgraded with a laser module? To make it an laser cutter.

    greetings jeroen swyngedouw

      Thank you for contacting us. We don't offer the upgrade, but there is no reason why you couldn't attach a laser to it, you will just need to find suitable controller/software to pair it with.

      There are always other factors that will changes these settings mainly how the machine is built , but this is a good starting point. Hope this helps, be sure to ask questions in the discussion thread of the build (tab at the top) so that other will learn as well. Thank you

    Hi Daz , watching your build progress with great interest as I intend to build my own C beam in the near future , I currently have a stepcraft 600 with Vcarve pro and uccnc software which has been fun to learn on but the build quality is not the best . I notice that you are in Wales - I live in Wrexham "small world or what" Keep up the good work with the vids ATB Bri

    Hi David
    You seem to be the go to guy for sketchup, maybe you can help me. I want to trace a pattern out for my scroll saw and cut it on my cbeam, looked for videos and at forums but can't seem to find anything

      A brief search shows that Inkscape can automatically trace an image. Then you can export that and import it into sketchup.

      Thank you for the response I'll check the video out not sure about the Inkscape have not used it

    Hi, I just read your review on the C=Beam and I was wondering what electronics did you go with?? I used the Arduino Uno with GRBL Shield and it doesn't work properly.

    Thanks for your time!

      I used the same board that was used in the original build by Mark. They sell it in the parts store,CNC xpro v2, just bought. Xpro v3 for a plasma table project. Card is pretty straight forward and have not had any problems with it.

    Rob, in your write up on Actuator testing data you list a NEMA 23 leadscrew actuator and a NEMA 23 high torque leadscrew actuator, could you tell me the difference in configuration between them? I really appreciate this testing you have done.

    Hey ,i saw in a post that you fit a ballscrew in the C-beam. May i ask where u got it and what size? i'm fairly new in cnc but would prefer ballscrews to normal leadscrews, i have looked a bit but cant find any that would actualy fit in the small section of the C-beam.

    Post i saw it in : http://openbuilds.org/threads/openbuilds-ox-cnc-machine.134/page-112

    Hi Mark, I wanted to know if you could send me the link to the ox plate files. Had them, then lost my thumb drive they were on and can't locate that link I used when I purchased my c-beam bundle. Would like to upgrade to the OX build. Thanks.
