    Hello - I am awaiting the delivery of the Lead 1010 machine and wanted to pre-build a sound enclosure. Can someone who already has a Lead 1010 provide the x, y, and z dimensions that clear the stepper motors and framework?

    I was hoping for the same dimensions to pre-build a table that the motors won't overhang the edges. I opened the sketchup file and drew a line across the x and y. seems they are just over 44" z about 21". Mine is supposed to arrive Friday. I can measure this weekend. I think 45x45x24 will cover the whole thing nicely.

    I've actually built an enclosure for mine, and can also measure the machine and the enclosure for you when I get home in a few hours. A little late if your parts are arriving tomorrow, but you can at least get materials and stuff ready for your build. I do know offhand that my enclosure is around 4'x4', but I'll get you exact information later. You're gonna love the machine, it's so good. Congrats on getting one!

    Cool looking cabinet. :D How much sound do you think it reduces? :rolleyes:
    I may need to build one for myself, but thought perhaps the need for the viewing panel would undermine the value of the cabinet?

    Thanks! Honestly it's a life saver. I'd say it easily cuts the noise in half for me, but that's not measured or anything - rather just how it feels to my ears. The biggest thing it helps with is cutting down the high-frequency noises; I can barely hear my spindle when it's running idly and I have my air cleaners going. I originally planned to seal up all the seams from the inside with some sort of caulk, but it works well enough right now that I probably won't. I am curious if it will perceptively reduce the noise though! And the windows do a pretty good job of keeping the work surface visible, so that hasn't bothered me. I also have a webcam attached to my gantry but I haven't yet found a software solution for remote monitoring and whatnot. I definitely highly recommend it!

    I didn't end up building an enclosure since I could barely hear it from inside the house with it running in the garage. The vacuum is actually the loudest part. Here is the table I built. It's 48x48
