    Hello friend, Did you finished your LCD Based SLA Resin Printer ? It's possible to get some DIY manual? Or CAD files from you?
    Thanks for help ;)

      Mechanically, it's complete. I'm still having issues on the screen front. I don't have any of my CAD files posted, as I really wouldn't say they are "finished". If I can complete the printer successfully, then I may consider posting the files.

    Hi, Thanks fot the picture !!

    I have another VFD, the YL620-A and it only has 1 terminal strip. How did you wire your VFD and what are your exact PD values. What kind of card do you use, the XproV3 or 4?

    Thank you.

    can you email me the PD list if you like to ?

    Hi Chris,
    Looking your YouTube channel from last few days. I wish to build laser cutter for my Aeromodelling use.
    The cutting area/size should be 30” X 48” as my media is. I would like to cut EPP/EPS foam sheets (2mm-20mm), Balsa sheets (1mm-10mm), Plywood sheets (1mm-6mm). Please feel free to contact me on my Whats App no. +91-955222800

    Hi Gary, can the 8" High Z Mod be use in a Workbee 1510?

      Hi Manny,
      Not without modification, the Workbee uses custom gantry plates where as the Lead uses maker plates and vertical extrusions at the ends of the gantry. I'm sure if you post on a workbee thread you can get some ideas to gain more Z height.
      Cheers

    Mark, I sent a email but haven’t heard anything back yet.

    Does the machine come with everything you need?
    On the C-Beam options is shows that there is a control board that is out of stock. If I buy the machine, what control comes with it?
    Do you sell the water cooled spindles?
    Do you offer free shipping
    If I’m close to you can I pick up the package to save on shipping cost?

      Hello @Benfish65 Thank you for contacting me. It looks like the Part Store Team is reaching out to you on this as we speak, but I can say that there is a wiring video in the works for the the C-Beam Machine and the BlackBox! It should be available soon. Thank you and all the best with your Build.

    Mary,
    I sent two messages in the conversations area. They both are the same message, the first one included Mark Carew and you, while the second only includes yourself. Would you be so kind as to look at this conversation and provide any information you can.
    Thanks

    hello, Looking to buy a Lead 1010. I'm very new to CNC, but jumping in anyway..
    I was looking at both the Lead 1010 and the WorkBee 1010. Pricing both, the Lead 1010 does not list the "Wiring" as an option? Is it include as part of the bundle? It is an option on the WorkBee.
    I want to make sure I have everything when it arrives...
    I cannot find any Phone numbers to talk to a sales person, so trying here.

      In the Bundle Contents listed for the LEAD 1010, the wiring kit is INCLUDED. You are going to want to wait until this weekend to order though - Father's Day special coming up!

      Hiya
      The BlackBox runs GRBL so you need a GRBL post. If there is no post labelled as such then use the one that outputs the simplest Gcode, this means
      G1/G2/G3 codes are ok,
      metric and imperial (G20,G21) are both fine,
      NO toolchange codes,
      no tool offsets
      the full list of supported codes is on the GRBL wiki at github.com

    Hey dddman, I saw an old post talking about v-slot extrusion and you mentioned you were a distributor in Quebec (where I am from). I checked out your site fuzztech.ca but it doesn't seem to be working, I'm not even sure if you are still active on this site. If you are still active, and are still a distributor let me know so we can talk shop. Thanks

    Hello sir,

    I have small Openbuild workbee CNC machine which 'm using for PCB cutting, I appreciate the CNC which you have given by openbuilds , the problem 'm going through is the small round tracks in PCB are not coming properly and i think it is because of mechanical backlash, can you please give a solution how can i reduce the backlash problem in my CNC machine.

    Thanks and Regards

    Gary, I think this may fit my needs. I looked up the Estlcam web sites and reviewed their capabilities and etc. However, I couldn't find anything regarding the use of a PROBE for moving over a 3D object and creating the GCODE. Could you either provide me with additional information about the Estlcam PROBE or send the link where I can lookup the information myself. Thanks again for your help.
