some of the parts listed in the BOM are wrong.

Part # Included Source Alt Source
Cotter Pins 2 fastenall
Brick Mounting Bolts 4 fastenall
Brick Mounting Nuts 4 fastenall
Short Wood Screws 14 fastenall 7000bulk box??? change to part # 32182 individual screws
Long Wood Screws 90 fastenall 2000 bulk box?? change to item # 32187 for individual screws.
Motor Mounting Screw 8 fastenall
Motor Mounting Washer 8 fastenall not washers, duplicate of above bolts.

luckily it’s pretty easy to spot the errors because your shopping cart becomes extremely expensive.

Ring>1|Custom||

there are two linkage kits available that can do the job

Z-axis Motor|1|Custom||
Motor Cable|2|Custom||

there have been lots of discussions about motor options, I won’t try to cover
them here.

it varies, with recent setups (counterweights), we don’t use this except for the
anti-backlash on the Z axis

Chain>2|Custom|Amazon| ---- length?..

I believe that stock in 11’ each, but you would do well to get ~13’ each in case
you end up wanting to extend your top beam

Motor sprocket|2|Custom||

8mm inner diameter, 10 tooth #25 roller chain sprockets

Slack Sprocket|2|Custom||

a #25 sprocket with no hub

Heatsink>2|Custom||

newer motor control boards come with heat sinks

Ring Bearing|4|Custom||

only needed if you are doing the ring rather than one of the linkage kits

So where on this website can I actually buy the CNC? I must be missing it somewhere.

There are a couple companies selling kits right now, metalmaslow just started
selling their upgraded kit, and makermade is selling the original kit.
