    Wondering are there any x-carve cnc owners out there? I am thinking of buying the 500mm cnc and use it with my makita trim router.

    Just want to how peeps are getting on with it if they have one.

    Hello,

    I have one that i got mid last year using the dewalt 611 trim router. If you plan on using the makita trim router you may need to use shims to mount it as i don't think inventables has a mount for the makita model.

    I would also recommend taking your time to build the kit as there are a lot of parts. when i built mine it took most of a weekend.

    I would also recommend getting some loctite (non-permanent) for some of the bolts as i have had an issue with some of them loosening over time.

    The model i have is the 500mm versions which gives an approximate 11.4x11.4 usable work area. If space and budget allows you may want to consider the 750mm version.

    I would also recommend at least getting a 1/4 to 1/8 bushing adapter so you can use both 1/4 and 1/8 shank bits.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
