  • . I purchased the 5x Greembull recently and was hoping I could get some advice and/or plans for the torsion box and table

    A torsion box is a way to create a dead flat surface for the CNC router. A torsion box consists of an internal grid of wood that serves as the structure and a top and bottom layer sandwiching the internal grid layer.

    Here is an excellent resource on how to make a torsion box.

    Make sure to leave 2 inches or more overhang on the top layer (3/4" thick) to make room for the rails and the chain mounts.

  • where is my purchased cad/cam software?

    Mach3 or Mach4 licenses purchased from us go through a process that includes us purchasing the license from the Mach3 developer first. The developer can take up to 2 hours to delver that license back to us to be emailed to the customer.

    If the license was purchased outside of business hours, then we will start the process at the beginning of the next business day.

    If you notice a delay in this process, please give us a call so we can provide a status, or let us know that you purchased the license so we can get the process going. Even during business hours, it may take some time to get to your order with our workload.

    Thanks.

  • Can I buy the plans for the verticle xl?

    The files and hardware option for our machines has been removed from the site due to the following reasons:
    Difficulty for the end use of the files and the challenges (and time/money) on our side to assist in using these files.
    The abuse of these files over the internet.
    Ultimately may reduce the sales of machines keeping us in business.
    Sadly, this is what has come out of our company attempting to be open; however, the machines sold on this site is still far lower in price than the competition for the quality that we provide as we have a great desire to engender the cottage industry to fulfill their need for low end manufacturing. My sincere apologies if this causes any inconvenience.

    Additional Information:
    NO, is not possible, I can help with the shipping cost

  • co you sell plans so I can cut my own laser setup??

    The plans or DXF files are not offered. We sell the machines as kits or fully assembled. The kits are very well priced and will most likely cost less if materials and labor than working from plans (this comes from feedback from many customers that built similar machines from plans).

  • ARE THERE PRODUCTS AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT CAN BE PURCHASED PROTECT CELLULAR OR PORTABLE TELEPHONE USERS FROM RADIATION? IF SO, WHERE THESE FOUND?

    There are a number of opportunistic gadgets on the market to allegedly protect the user from hazards of cellular phones. You can search the Internet to find the latest, ranging from antenna shields to whole-body shielding materials. Most experts believe that these devices take advantage of customers' misunderstanding and unfounded fears to sell products with no real value. First of all, cell phones that operate within the guidelines established by national and international safety panels have never been shown to pose a health risk to the user (see answers to other questions on cell phone safety on this website). Secondly, placing any kind of shield over the antenna of a cell phone will in most cases cause it to increase its RF output as it attempts to compensate for signal loss in the shield and maintain a quality phone call. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration published an advisory on cell phones several years ago that said if you are concerned about risks of using a cell phone, then simply use it less. That is still good advice today. Gary Zeman, ScD, CHP Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

  • I purchased your single relay and need to know what wire go s to the signal in

    Hi. The relay that we sell here:
    https://www.buildyourcnc.com/item/electronicsAndMotors-breakout-Relays-relay-board-250V-12A-5V

    Has the same relay as the parallel breakout board:
    https://www.buildyourcnc.com/item/electronicsAndMotors-parallel-breakout-relay

    And contains three terminals: "S", "P" and "P". The "P" is always connected and will be the connection between the "S" or the "O" depending on if you need the connection to be Normally Closed (NC) or Normally Open (NO).

    - Use the "O" if you need the connection from "P" and "O" to be Normally Open, meaning that the circuit will close (be connected) if the relay engages.

    - Use the "S" if you need the connection from "P" and "S" to be Normally Closed, meaning that the circuit will open (be disconnected) if the relay engages.
