Re: Shapeoko threaded table announced (again)

Very nice. Mine seems to be in transit still with a still-scheduled arrival tomorrow hopefully...

Does it include new (longer?) screws to tie it in to the SO3 framing rails? Or is the expectation that the original hardware will work from the stock MDF table?

Re: Shapeoko threaded table announced (again)

Well, now that UPS has picked it up, it's showing Wednesday for mine as well. For some reason, I thought it was coming from the West Coast rather than Illinois. Usually 2 business days to Austin from Illinois rather than 4 or 5 coming from Cali. Hoping this new vendor they picked came through...

Re: Shapeoko 3 Probe & Limit Switch Kit

Wondering if anybody has received anything from Fablicator/Additive Aerospace? I decided to give the limit/probe kit a go to see what better features I could utilize as well as a printed electronics enclosure. I've even directly emailed the seller and haven't heard a peep back. Does anybody know how...

Re: Shapeoko threaded table announced (again)

I'm sort of wondering the same thing....I sent a "prodding" email a number of days ago and haven't heard anything back from Carbide on the matter. Aside from stopping the taking of additional pre-orders (I jumped on one as soon as they announced the current batch), they've been strangely silent on t...

Re: SO3 Z-axis spring alternative

Bump.

Edward indicated on September 18th that he'd have an update on the spring situation the following week. Not to bug, but we are now approaching 2 months since that comment.

Any info yet?

I've definitely been ready to jump on this since it was first floated by Edward/Carbide...eagerly waiting an update on when this effort might get some additional traction. :-)

Re: Black oxide washers?

The only real difference, of impossible importance to some, is cosmetic. If one is going for a "blacked-out" look then the substitution of standard vs black oxide could warrant seeking local replacements. I had noticed the same discrepancy when inventorying my kit upon arrival. However, after review...
