    I followed along with the build videos that Matt did and they were very good. Other than one broken flanged bearing everything else was perfect! I have a feeling the flange bearing that broke was due to having the high torque motors and the motor didn't release when I put too much pressure on it. I just ordered five more flange bearings just in case I get heavy-handed again! Thank you for a great product.

    Been in the signage industry for 30 years and have owned and/or run tons of equipment. Been running multiple X-Carves in our business and needed to add another large CNC. Looked at the latest Pro from X-Carve vs the OPENBUILDS LEAD CNC MACHINE 1515 (60" X 60"), and saw that with our expertise, we could purchase the 1515 for way less, build it, turn a few wrenches to tweak it, and end up with really similar functionality as the XCarve Pro for about $7000.00 less. Ordered the machine and did the build. Ran into a few snags but got support from Mark at OpenBuilds and got the initial issues resolved. Upon completion and tweaks, we cranked up and immediately saw positive impact on our manufacturing production, as well as sales of new orders related to the capabilities of the 1515. Buy it, build it, and add profit to your business!
