    Well... need to say...

    Disaster

    Something went wrong ....

    There was a tiny leak.

    It leaked on the surface of Xaxis... it sucked inbetween the gantry and bed...

    I did make preparations to prevent this.

    I sprayed wd40 inbetween before pouring.

    So nothing could stick.. worked only partially.

    I needed a hammer an chisel to separate the gantry from the bed.

    1 side of the x bed surface delaminated from the steel ....destroyed .

    So deep breath ... cleanup and do it once more...


    Grtz Bert.

    Bom ordered BST Fred.

    Anyone with experience from NL here?

    I am curious about how this will work with dutch customs..
    I understand carrier will report to tax administration..
    My estimation is about 27% extra cost.
    21 vat 5 import and some minor handling cost.

    Guess i will pay tax and handling cost to carrier..

    Grtz. Bert

    Well i am not sure yet.. fedex delivered... i paid Fred... But i have not been taxed yet..



    I guess it will be in the +/- 1300.- euro range.

    I understand sometimes you pay tax in the country where goods enter EU.

    That would be belgium..

    Top Z carriage position.


    Hi guys..

    I am doing 15mm plywood test fit for all Z axis alu plates before ordering.


    Where did you mount your top carriage?

    High or low? And why?
