Remove XXL mounting feet?

Post by coopcnc » Sat Dec 16, 2017 5:28 pm

Greetings. New Shapeoko 3 XXL owner with a lot to learn but having a blast so far. First question for the forum is I have heard a few references about removing the feet from the XXL model to help improve performance. Just wondering if this is worthwhile or not? I am liking have a little extra space below the board to allow mounting screws to have room to pass through if needed.

Thanks for this board and all the great information,
Marcus

Some folks have had issues w/ sagging, and removing the feet makes it easier to put the machine on a flat surface --- I do that w/ a Yoga mat on top, but mostly for sound-dampening.
