About the Lead

Mark Carew originally designed the Lead CNC Machine and the design is licensed under CC – Attribution – CC BY. This is the Maker Store kit Version 2 based on his design.

The Lead Version 2 is a super-strong, accurate, and easy to assemble CNC machine-made using off the shelf parts with easily customizable options such as the High Z Mod to increase the working Height.

It has been designed to accurately cut foams, woods, plastics, and aluminum to 0.05-0.10mm accuracy or better.

Functional engineering parts, toys, signs, or anything else that can be imagined, can be made on the Lead CNC Machine.

The Maker Store kit has a couple of differences from the design published by Mark Carew. Most notably are the use of Black Corner Connectors in place of Cast Brackets to increase rigidity and a tensioning kit to eliminate lead screw whip. Also the single extrusion on the X-Axis.
