My Shapeoko XL Arrives

Took me about 4 hours to get it setup. Already started making some things but learn a quick lesson, make sure you zero before you run a cut. I forgot to zero ran full forward hit the metal frame of the machine and broke a bit. Scared the shit out of me cuz when the bit hit, the head zipped to the right. Almost had a heart attack.


I just realized I did not install the limit switch… :blush:

No problem, I think it’s easier / better as an upgrade, assuming you mean the homing switches which can be configured to provide soft limits.

For an XL or XXL, the drag chain should pop open, allowing you to load the wire after the fact.

Yes, the homing switch than came with it, my mistake in not installing it. Thought it was extra stuff for when you buy the kit.
