    Hey folks,
    I gutted a 40mm stainless square tube and sunk it into my X axis in the hopes of increasing rigidity on my Kyo Sphinx style machine. I made a rather silly video of the process here:

    I took extensive measurements from seven different points at many different downward forces of the router. I'd love to know if any of you have had success making your c-beam style machine more rigid and if so, how.

    Here is a link to the data: Wire Monkey C-beam X axis upgrade test

    Cheers,
    Tyler
