CNCGear is a concept, an idea born from exposure to, and use of many, many different CNC designs including the Workbee, Lead CNC, X Carve and more. The lessons learned from each of those machines have been applied to this design, the CNCGear concept to make designing and building a CNC kit as easy as possible.

  • Designed to accept M8 bolts for wheel sets

  • Utilises TR12 (12mm) Lead Nuts

  • Accomodates Limit Switches

  • Suitable for many variations of attachment

  • 6mm Thick Aluminium

  • Powder coated for resilience to wear

Using this plate an entire series of actuators can be joined to form single, 2 or 3 axis machines.

Below are just some ideas, starting off with a single, powerful actuator.
