DIY Kits for the CNC enthusiast
*Note: You can save some money by ordering the acme precision lead screw and cutting them to length yourself. You can also save money by ordering the couplers and acme nuts directly from dumpstercnc.com. Just order the Gatton CNC kit from their website. The acme precision lead screw can be ordered from McMaster Carr in 6 foot lengths. The part number is 99030A704.
The CNC DIY kits are available as "a rolling chassis" which includes all the metal components, hardware, and V-groove bearings listed as Package "A". This makes it easy for you to add your own acme precision lead screws, acme nuts, and couplers or if you prefer order Package "B" and get your lead screws already cut to the correct length with the acme nuts, couplers AND the bearings and bearing mounts. All orders will be filled on a "first come first serve" basis. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if I have the package you want to order in stock and what the current lead time is. Sorry only shipping to continental US at this time. Please allow 5 to 10 business days for delivery.
If you have an older 36" x 24" kit and want to purchase the conversion kit to use the dual X axis rails please scroll down.
Bearing Mounts only. For those of you who want to purchase your own bearings.
Please note: I have only had a few people ask me for the conversion kit and I have 10 sets on order that will be ready in a week or so. After these 10 conversion kits are gone it may be a while before I can get more. Thank you.
