    Hi Guys, not sure if this is the right place to come, but thought I'd try... I'm looking to order parts of to make the C-Beam kit on open builds. However, it's a little vague on the "what's included" part of the page and I can' t tell whether the spindle/router mount is included or I have to order as an add on??? I couldn't find anywhere on the main open builds website to ask this question directly, which would be great have for folks like me who need to ask pre-order questions (bit of positive feedback). So was wondering if anyone here knows the answer? Thanks so much everyone!

    C-Beam® Machine - Plate Maker

    The spindle/router mount is included. You'll have to buy a router as add-on. May I suggest LEAD Machine instead of C-Beam Machine?

    C-Beam Machine has working area of about 12" x 12" X 3.5". LEAD Machine has working area of about 30" X 30" X 4". A bigger machine is better than a small machine.

    Not even remotely true. Smaller machines are generally stiffer and stiffer machines cut harder materials better. Ultimately which machine is better comes down to what you intend to do with it.
