Hi, this is not really a spoil board kit, but a completion of an extension kit. These items should have come with the extension kit. The aluminum trays are unprotected with this upgrade and needs to have a spoil board added.
Tops off the 3018 prover nicely. You should purchase the extension kit as well. You need both. Also follow closely the install manual and videos. Some steps are not obvious. Once installed properly the machine homes correctly and you have a huge work area. Looks fantastic.
Instructions are easy to follow and the install went without a snag. The only thing to be conscious of is that one side of the board has recessed holes for the bolt heads.
Came quickly. Well packed. Supporting documents were clear with solid graphics. Take your time and you’ll have a lot more room to create.
This is priced good. was easy to put together and a quality parts. am going to buy another
From the build to first cut. Sheer joy
The design with the spoilboard /attaching board works. HOWEVER - it also reduces the Z clearance by 9mm. Couple that with the 7 mm you lose with the aluminum 52mm spindle mount - and you really limit your workspace. Consider if you need the extra board space vs. height. I also installed the extended Y rails which gives you the extra length you want - not sure you really need the double bed size. Installed- i was UNABLE to use the laser on 2" blocks due to height. I ended up removing this - i may consider trying it again - but will use joining plates vs the entire board. I may 3d print some. I think this could have been better implemented with a thin aluminum panel of the same size - with a fraction of the thickness.
This board that I purchased makes my work much easier great purchase Larry
was what I was looking for fast shipping and well packaged when I ordered my PROVer 3018 I had also got the rail exitron kit was awesome to see the bed kit works like a charm
a little strange to me to use 2 pieces of aluminum for the bed but this design does work
