Make your dreams a reality with the LEAD 1515 CNC Router! (assembly required)

The LEAD CNC 1515 a super strong, accurate and easy to assemble CNC machine. It gains its strength by incorporating a combination of C-Beam Linear Rail with dual XLarge C-Beam Plates and full size Xtreme Solid V wheels. Like the Workbee and Sphinx designs, the OpenBuilds LEAD CNC design keeps the lead screws directed towards the outsides of the machine to reduce the likelihood of shavings contaminating them. It also uses only standard OpenBuilds parts and requires no custom cut gantry plates making expanding the machine easy and re-purposing any replaced parts more likely. It’s a great machine and we're sure you will love it!

The LEAD 1515's design features a new tensioning system for the X and Y axis LEAD screws to virtually eliminate "screw whip" that can occur when using 8mm LEAD screws on drives over 1000mm long. The LEAD 1515's X-Axis has also been stiffened through the incorporation of dual C-Beam Linear Rails to achieve even better accuracy. The LEAD 1515's larger cutting area make it possible to create large projects with 4’ x 4’ sheets of material and cut or 3D carve wood, plastics, aluminum, etc. to create big and beautiful intricate 3D carvings, inlays, furniture, signs, plaques, amazing works of art and so much more.

This kit includes the OpenBuilds LEAD1515 parts bundle, electronics, and all their accessories. All you will need to purchase is the appropriate cutting bits and a spoil board (most people use MDF readily available at most local hardware stores) If you want to configure your own LEAD1515 bundle with different options please visit this page.
