    Hi
    Im getting some supports to the X axis. My working space measures around 320x280 I wanted to increase the Z by 50mm, so I need to decide whether Im buying it the same length as I have now or longer.
    Please, help me make that decision. Anybody tried increasing Z? Will I loose on it?

    Thank you

    you will lose rigidity :)
    mine is +150mm & end up to put the table(z) higher to cut decently.

    Thank you. I liked your build, it made me wanting more from mine :) Im leaving it the way it is, but im also adding some supports. I found that i can move the router with a medium push/pull. Should I tighten the wheels? Any way to make it more rigid?
