    Little changes to the build video provided but they were readily identifiable. Regarding the machine itself...It is awesome!!! Built in one day and ran 3 projects on it that same night. Easiest setup for anyone interested.

    Great Machine

    With the video build guide and awesome customer support I was able to get the Lead 1515 up and running in no time. When paired with Easel and Open Control this machine is extremely beginner friendly! I love that the platform as a whole is upgradable and wont leave me wishing for a whole new machine in a few years.

    Great machine, great support

    Posted by Sean O on Sep 9th 2022

    We've recently build our lead 1515 machine. This machine is really fun. We enjoyed building the machine and we have learned a lot of along the build. After following the instructions, I expected to do a lot of troubleshooting (like most things) on the first cuts but everything just worked. This machine is complete and very well thought out. When we had problems with parts, support was very quick and helpful each time. Overall, this machine has good parts, very thorough instructions for building, a great community, and openbuildspartstore has amazing support. I personally like the blackbox, the control software, the online cam, and the preset configurations available for this machine. All of this combined makes a very enjoyable experience with this machine. I like it and recommend it to others.
