There is one easy area that could use some updating on the product webpage.
The specifications aren’t at all detailed enough for a CNC machine. I was trying to cut an opening through my spoilboard today and about 3/4 of the way through the cut I realized I was going to run out of Z-axis. I thought it was 100mm of travel (after my discovery) but I couldn’t verify this anywhere. Also, UGS was saying I was at 107 or 108 so I was quite worried I was about to crash in to the end of the Z.
I see it does say something like approxmately 4.5" of Z travel but approximate doesn’t hel when you’re down to mm. The full metric and imperial eqivalents need to be listed there. Have a look at what the guys who made the Mega V list for details: https://millrightcnc.com/product/millright-cnc-mega-v-router-bundle/
For a variety of reasons I think the Longmill is superior but their specs are much more easily accessed.
Likewise the discussions we’ve had about the cutting area vs. cutting area with the dust boot on etc should really be detailed too. These “little” things can make a big difference in whether someone has enough information to choose the Longmill over other machines, and also how people can prepare before arrival for their machine and what they can easily do when working with it.
Through trial and error I’ve figured out that I appear to have 848 mm Y-axis travel with the dust boot on and 746mm X-axis travel with the boot on. I think this is correct within a few mm, but not sure.
Anyway, consistent and thorough specs in both mm and imperial (mm first if it is design in mm) would be another suggestion.\
And a question - is there a specific reason that the inner feet on the Y-rails don’t protrude the same amount as the end feet? It would make lining things up easier if they were all aligned. It would also make it easier to square the first rail to the table when installing it.
