    If a financial advisor can use this...

    Posted by Brian White on Jan 17th 2022

    This is a wonderful machine to get started on, especially for beginners. I'm just a hobby woodworker, but I was able to assemble and use the CNC thanks to all of the support from OpenBuilds. The videos of the assembly were invaluable, as were all of the individuals I interacted with. The quality of the parts really puts it over the top. Everything is well made and easy to modify. I have learned A TON from the entire process of assembling and using this machine. It's definitely worth every penny.

    Well thought, well made, very satisfied

    Posted by Vero on May 25th 2021

    We bought the 1010 along with the high Z mod. Order came in within a week (from USA to Canada). All the pieces were well packed, well identified (which makes the assembly a breeze). The videos are clear and simple to follow (even for a new B like me). We had an issue with a part which made a rod impossible to go thru, no sweat, their team is there to help and support. What a great experience. The only downside is I wish there would have been a video for the assembly of a new 1010 with the high Z mod, it would have spared us quite some time and some back and forth. Overall, I am thrilled to have a very well made and thought CNC.

    UPDATE - Amazing All Around

    Posted by Scott Wyshynski on Apr 19th 2021

    Awesome customer service! Had an issue with one of my c-beams and the next business day a replacement part was sent out so I could finish building the machine. Once built the operation and quality of the design far exceed my expectations. After researching CNC machines and reading reviews; I am 100% satisfied and glad I went with Openbuilds and the 1010. I am blown away by the simplicity of use and the quality of the finished work....and that's with a basic milling bit and default settings for speed and feed rate. Complete success with my very first design (and no I didn't print the hello world stock design). I also like that down the road the machine can be modified.
