    Lead 1010

    It was really fun to assemble the machine with all the parts laid out really well. Once I powered it on it was easy to control with the free software. I’m excited at the projects this will slow me to do now

    Wonderful I fell in love with this device and took it late in writing a review to make sure of the device's effectiveness I found some missing parts and it was damaged due to shipping and informed the company, and their treatment was very elegant and immediately everything I needed was sent. I liked the way you interact and I hope to work with you always thank you

    In my opinon you won't be sorry

    Let me start off by saying I new to CNC. I wanted to upgrade to a larger machine, was checking at varies site and decide to try open build. Customer service was great as I was able to spit my purchase on two different account to buy the lead 10x10. I chose free shipping and it arrive within 4 to 5 days. It took me a while to build it. Did I say I was a newbie, I follow along with the video (they were great). In some area I had to go back and review the video 2 or 3 time just make sure I did it correctly, lol (or that don't look right}. After the build I had a small problem with the X axis, but customer service great at pointing me to the right direction. Turn out it was a coupling on the x lead screw. (it was not install right) I did my first test of Hello world and it turn out great. My second carve turn out great too. So I am really happy with the purchase and you will be too. Not able to post the picture of my carve.

    Almost done with the assembly of the machine, ready to start the wiring. So far I am impressed with the materials and the ease of the assembly.
