Side Board (Optional)
Install all threaded inserts into side board.
Insert 2 pre-assembly t-slot nuts on the side of each aluminum extrusion (facing inward). These will be used to attach the gusset brackets to the extrusions. Insert 1 additional pre-assembly t-slot nut on the top side of one of the 958mm extrusions to match up with the middle countersunk hole on the sideboard.
Loosely assemble frame using the 20mm x 20mm aluminum extrusion, 4 gusset brackets, 8 pre-assembly insertion nuts and 8 M5x10mm button head cap screws.
Place sideboard over the frame and line up 958mm extrusion with the pre-assembly t-slot nut under the middle countersunk hole. Tighten all 8 M5x10mm button head cap screws to secure gusset brackets. Slide 2 pre-assembly t-slot nuts on the top of the 250mm aluminum extrusions. Attach the sideboard to the frame by placing 5 M5x12mm button head cap screws in the countersunk holes and securing them into the pre-assembly insertion nuts.
Insert pre-assembly t-slot nuts into the ends of the sideboard and wasteboard frame. These will be used to attach the side board to the X-Carve frame using the extrusion connection brackets. Use M5 x 8 button head cap screws to secure the extrusion connection brackets.
If needed, you can find additional M5 x 12mm Button Head Cap Screws in the Spare Parts Kit.
If needed, you can find additional M5 Post-Assembly Tee Nuts in the Spare Parts Kit.
Use 2 post-assembly t-slot nuts and 2 M5 x 10 flat head screws to secure the drag chain to the sideboard.
Lift the machine onto the side board and tighten down remaining button head cap screws.
NOTE: The M5 x 14 button head cap screws will be used to attach the X-Controller to the sideboard. Extra screws can be used to mount components not included with the X-Carve.
