    Mark, I sent a email but haven’t heard anything back yet.

    Does the machine come with everything you need?
    On the C-Beam options is shows that there is a control board that is out of stock. If I buy the machine, what control comes with it?
    Do you sell the water cooled spindles?
    Do you offer free shipping
    If I’m close to you can I pick up the package to save on shipping cost?

      Hello @Benfish65 Thank you for contacting me. It looks like the Part Store Team is reaching out to you on this as we speak, but I can say that there is a wiring video in the works for the the C-Beam Machine and the BlackBox! It should be available soon. Thank you and all the best with your Build.

    Did you ever get your MPCNC working with the BlackBox? I have the same setup but haven't started the build yet.

    I sent two messages in the conversations area. They both are the same message, the first one included Mark Carew and you, while the second only includes yourself. Would you be so kind as to look at this conversation and provide any information you can.

    Hi, who could I ask for help with my X-Pro board V2?
    Not touched the router for over a year but now that I try, the board seems to communicate ok but it will not operate the steppers?

    hello, Looking to buy a Lead 1010. I'm very new to CNC, but jumping in anyway..
    I was looking at both the Lead 1010 and the WorkBee 1010. Pricing both, the Lead 1010 does not list the "Wiring" as an option? Is it include as part of the bundle? It is an option on the WorkBee.
    I want to make sure I have everything when it arrives...
    I cannot find any Phone numbers to talk to a sales person, so trying here.
    1. MaryD
      In the Bundle Contents listed for the LEAD 1010, the wiring kit is INCLUDED. You are going to want to wait until this weekend to order though - Father's Day special coming up!

      The BlackBox runs GRBL so you need a GRBL post. If there is no post labelled as such then use the one that outputs the simplest Gcode, this means
      G1/G2/G3 codes are ok,
      metric and imperial (G20,G21) are both fine,
      NO toolchange codes,
      no tool offsets
      the full list of supported codes is on the GRBL wiki at github.com

    Hey dddman, I saw an old post talking about v-slot extrusion and you mentioned you were a distributor in Quebec (where I am from). I checked out your site fuzztech.ca but it doesn't seem to be working, I'm not even sure if you are still active on this site. If you are still active, and are still a distributor let me know so we can talk shop. Thanks

    Hello sir,

    I have small Openbuild workbee CNC machine which 'm using for PCB cutting, I appreciate the CNC which you have given by openbuilds , the problem 'm going through is the small round tracks in PCB are not coming properly and i think it is because of mechanical backlash, can you please give a solution how can i reduce the backlash problem in my CNC machine.

    Thanks and Regards

    Hey Mark, I'm building an c-beam plate maker cnc, but my Z-axis doesn't seem like it'll go low enough to touch thespoiler board. Any suggestions

    Gary, I think this may fit my needs. I looked up the Estlcam web sites and reviewed their capabilities and etc. However, I couldn't find anything regarding the use of a PROBE for moving over a 3D object and creating the GCODE. Could you either provide me with additional information about the Estlcam PROBE or send the link where I can lookup the information myself. Thanks again for your help.

    Mary, I am planning on ordering materials for my build in the next day or so. Just noticed that all linear actuators in Store are listed as out of stock. I am checking to see if these will be back in stock soon? Mainly interested in Nema 23 Belt and Pinion actuator

      They are in stock now. A glitch maybe??

    I'm very new to all this. Considering this package: black rails, wiring kit, NEMA high torque motors, power bundle, thinking of opting for blackbox controller, and the dust shoe. I'm thinking of purchasing Vcarve to complement the LEAD 1010 along with using openbuilds software. Would you mind letting me know if this is everything I would need to get started? Do instructions for assembly come with the build?

      Hey RC. I searched for this on the Xcarve Facebook page and found a topic that discusses this with several people and they all say that they have moved their machine after it was assembled. With that I'm probably going to assemble mine inside and move it outside after its done.

      Did you decide on ordering the blackbox controller?
      Mar 1, 2019

      Yes. I'm going to. From what I've been reading it will have enough power to handle the high torque stepper motors.

    Hello Gino! I loved your hotwire project, I would like to ask you for more details regarding the electronics, what parts should I look for? I am a newbie, don't know much, researching I found out that purchase a hot wire CNC is quite expensive so I would like to create my own. Please your help will be really appreciated.

    Mark I seen you replied to someone about a phone number for support in April of last year. I am looking to buy the Lead Machine and I’d like to purchase it through your eBay store as I have a PayPal offer that expires tonight at midnight.

    Any chance you know how to make that happen?

    I’ve emailed the parts store. Sent a message of Facebook, and filled out a contact form.

    I have until midnight to make the order.
    1. MaryD
      This is the proper way to contact support. You've done all the right things. If you are not getting a timely response, please let me know.

    Can you recommend a C-Beam Linear Actuator Bundle that has been used or would work well for the original OX build? I am looking for an upgrade from mine that would give me a stiffer z axes. Has anyone done this?.
