    Hi all, new to the community.

    I have been searching, but I am having a hard time finding the drag chain mounts for a 1000x1000 machine. I see just the drag chains, but no mounting hardware.

    Anyone able to help me out? Thanks in advance!

    If you mean the Workbee...is this what you're looking for ? (page 17 from the full kit manual)

    You could make something similar with a piece of aluminum angle mounted to the plate. This mount looks like something 3d printed.

    The Openbuilds wiring video shows them using the single hole L brackets found here: L Bracket

    If you have a 3d printer, Ooznest uses 3d printed ones found here: WorkBee CNC Machine by Ooznest (note that Im not sure if the chain mounting holes are the same.)

    Openbuilds didnt have the dragchain available when I bought my machine so I bought my chain from McMaster and 3d printed my own mounts:

    Not sure where you are located, but McMaster has it.
