Figured I would start a thread of my own for the build.
I don’t know when I will get it done or if I can actually fit it after some shop rearranging. (i think I can)
I am going to scrap all of the original crossfire frame with the exception of the brackets for the upper rail, the electronics enclosure and the Gantry arm itself.
I know Dax1592 did roughly the same thing but he replaced almost all of the lead screw hardware. My knowledge on this subject is novice at best so it will be a learning process for that aspect of the build. I know I will need a 1/2" lead screw for the Y axis so that will be the main challenge for me.
My goal is to not only expand to 2x4 but to make a much much heavier and stable frame.
Hopefully pick up materials this week and chip away at the project here and there as time permits.
