Hey all looking forward to sharing this build, I’ve learned a lot reviewing many of these great builds.

Nicely done! What have you made with your WorkBee lately?
I've just started the same journey with the same model last night. So far I'm missing one m5x60mm low profile screw but I might be lucky to use an M5x60mm pan head from Home Depot. We'll see on my next trip to the store.
So far, the build is going nicely. I hated assembling the 46 or so roller bearing assemblies, as it made my palms look like I had stigmatas, but I'll live. lol.
I've been reading up on this build quite a bit. Do you have any particular tips of your own that might prove to be gems of knowledge for this newbie Workbee owner?
As the newbie here, I just want to say hello and I look forward to visiting this forum often.
I think you will like the Workbee 1010, I think following the videos seemed to work for me, had to repeat some of them to make sure what I was looking at.
I had great help from customer service early on in the build.
I will say that checking and rechecking your machine squareness is going to help in the long run, don't hurry in this area.
I used a square, had thought I would need to shim but I decided not to, I'm within 1/32".
As I cut more I'll check squareness, also may need to verify the preload on the wheels. The machine is tight no vibration while cutting!!
