    I’m having some issues with everything being more.. wobbly then I’d like. I’m thinking about adding supports like this, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1730371 Does anyone have any luck with this or should I just lower the whole thing?

    If you’re not planning using all of that z height then your best bet is to lower it. You’d have a hell of a time finding end mills long enough to use all of that Z travel. What are you planning on using the machine for?

    You might want to shorten the legs and look into Drop Tables.

    I have a few large 3d prints I need to make so I think I’ll go the route of the drop table

    They’ll help, once you start using it for milling, lower it.

    You built it extremely tall, those supports will help the frame but won;t do anything for the Z axis. 3 inches is rock solid it goes downhill quickly from there.

    An update: I lowered the legs and using a cheap generic Dremel for now and it seems to be working. The tool has way too much play in the bit but for now I’m happy with the results.
