This version DOES NOT INCLUDE THE HOLE PUNCHED STEEL PLATE
It has shown in shipping this being bent and almost all of them arrived bent or broken.
Price is lowered, you can source a metal or plastic bed locally instead – template how to drill corner holes is included.
This is a kit for a motorized bed.
This kit is modular – it does not matter if you have a K40 or custom machine, you can fit this to whatever machine or DIY setup you have.
The modular design and our solution makes it very stable without the need for a big bulky frame holding it.
Can be bolted to the floor of your machine or to a piece of acrylic/metal to easier lift it out/in of the machine.
Please allow 3-4 days extra for packing these kits until shipping!
