    Did that and corner to corner they are.. exactly the same, C-beam to C-beam distances are also perfectly even 86,1cm at front, mid and end.

    I have the Lead 1010 right now. If I were to order two 500mm c beams with some quad tee nut connectors to attach to my current 1010/the 1500 acme screws/framing extensions for underneath support with connectors/4 tensions nuts/4 thrust bearings would I be set to extend my lead 1010 to 1500mm? Do you know if the 1540mm acme screw will have enough length to add the tension nuts and bearings to the left side of the picture?

    In all your tests, did you try to move the machine all the way to one end, manually adjust the one side that is not touching the end (so that they are both the same distance from the end) and then run the machine all the way and check it there is a difference?

    The thinner plates replace the C-Beam Endmounts > Get some C-Beam Motor Mount Plate s - they allow the use of the 1540mm (540mm, 1040mm, etc) screws
    Or keep the endmounts and chop 12mm off the C-Beams

    Rather replace them, the joint is going to be problematic for the loads expected

    Holy Cow that is an expensive spindle. I bought a 1.5KW spindle for half that price and it came with a VFD and 15 collets ranging from 1mm to 7mm. There are also 0.8KW spindles and they are even less expensive.

    I bought it on AliExpress.

    Even with added support from the base structure under the spoilboard?

    C-Beam Tension XL Linear Actuator Bundle | 3D Warehouse

    Can this bundle be bought or does everything need to be bought separately?

    I was looking over the bundle and there are a few things I wouldn't need. Considering I would be able to use some parts from my current machine the list below is what I have put together so far. Would these be everything I need in addition to the parts I would already have from the Lead 1010 to put together a tensioned 1500mm C beam?

    I suggest that OpenBuilds store sell a kit that have two motor plates, two sets of thrust bearings, two 40mm spacers, two 50mm screws, and one tension nut for people converting from compression (?) to tension system.

    Asking to be sure when connecting the Black Box to the PSU (Meanwell 350W) I didnt get the "PowerCase Kit" in my set, and I have to connect manually to the PSU. Want to be sure with the connection, as I understand I should connect a red wire to 24V slot on Blackbox and V+ on PSU, and the black one to GND on Blackbox and V- on PSU, am I right?

    V- = gnd = black
    V+ = 24v = red

    What would cause this issue when surfacing the waste board? It seems to ramp up at each end. Thought I had the machine square and everything.

    One issue you probably have there, and need to fix before you can resolve the other probable issue (tramming), is that your spoilboard may be flexing under the pressure from the bit. Check that the edges of the spoilboard are as well supported as possible and that support is evenly distributed across the width.

    I think you are correct on the spoil board flexing on the ends, I just took a look it that appears to be happening. I'll fix that and try everything again. Thanks

    As a total newbie to CNC milling, joined the Lead1010 family yesterday :)

    I read a post on Facebook mentioning the possibility of a convertor kit for the 1010 and making it into a 1015 or 1515 might be in the works.... Is there any truth to that?

    I have a 1010 and one of my biggest gripes is the way the spindle mount attaches to the c-beam with the four right angle brackets. I'm always having tramming issues, and far to0 often have to move these around and shim them by fractions of millimeters. Looking at the the high-z mod, and the new 1515 it looks like they are now using a XL plate and flipped the c-beam around. I don't really need the full high-z mod, but what would it take (parts) to modify the 1010 this way?

    It seems to me I've seen people discuss adding extra wheels to the Lead, but I can't seem to find the posts at the moment, and my machine doesn't appear to have much extra wheely room. Is this actually possible without making custom plates?

    I only ask because I noticed the wheels in the weekend sale.

    (totally not planning on doing wheelies)

    LOL, Batcrave, just buy some wheels and have them for 'just in case' and figure out the rest later! :D :D
