You’ll want to install some type of locking system for the X gantry and Z carriage on your flip enclosure so your gantry and spindle don’t crash into the door when you stow your setup. There is no braking system on the y axis when powered down.
Still working through what I want to build to house mine. Curious how do you plan to attach it to the table so it doesn’t move when you tilt the table. It is quite heavy and if you use the 4 feet holes for bolts I’m not sure it will be enough.
Are we talking about how to mount the machine to the table that it is sitting on?
If so - I have not tried this yet, but one thing I have been thinking about - is using isolation mounts, like these. Having used these sorts of mounts in previous applications, I know they do a very good job of decoupling vibration.
The machine has 4x M8 PEM nuts in each corner where the feet are intended to be attached. You could simply transfer that pattern to the table, forgo the feet and install these instead. Net/net I think the total height of the machine would remain roughly the same, as the isolation mounts are only about 1" tall.
Again, I haven’t tried this, so YMMV.
EDIT: Scratch that idea - I see now I misunderstood the question. You’re asking how to hold it to the table that is going to tilt the machine into the vertical position when not in use! I’ll have to give that some more thought, but I dont see why the using 4x M8 bolts (through the table into the machine) wouldn’t work.
My concern versus the X-Carve was weight. The Shaoeoko 3 is heavier which is nice because all that goes into rigidity across the longer lengths. But with only four points of contact and the momentum of swinging the table I wonder about the shear point of the bolts. I haven’t looked to see what you can get in that size.
I plan to order the SO3 XXL sometime after all the shipping issues are worked out. The table I’ll be constructing is overbuilt for the Shapeoko, but was designed with a CNCRouterParts Pro48X48 in mind, which if/when I outgrow the XXL, will be my second machine. Construction is 2.5" by 3/16" wall square tubing, 49" wide by 65" long and 35" high.
