Default Well it was bound to happen

I have been checking cncrouterparts every second day , just waiting for an increase .
Well today’s the day I guess , as it looks like they’ve gone up on average $175 .
Ealrlier in the week I checked , and the Pro 4x4 model was $4100.

What I found interesting is I recently enquired about getting a 5x5 size kit made , which was not offered on the site previously,and I noticed they now offer the 5x5 size .

I guess it was inevitable that they had to raise there prices as there costs for parts have surely gone up.
In there defence they have done very well in holding the same prices for years , so it’s understandable

Well in your defence your not far off lol . But seeing as I’m going to be jobless, I suspect I’ll get things in order whether I like it or not .


Guys,the reason I was curious about a 5x5 is there’s a guy at Joes CNC who uses 5x5 BB for something that he sells , and apparently the 5x5 BB size only comes with the certain properties that he needs , as the 4x8 sheets are different?
Can’t remember the difference , but there was something that he didn’t like about the construction grade of the 4x8 sheets for his application.

Also I believe kitchen cabinets etc use mostly 5x5 sheets to avoid waste I suspect . Not that I’m interested in making them really , but if someone wants to pay .

I cannot fit a 4x8 easily , at least I don’t think I can , but after I reorganize the shop, maybe I’ll figure out a way . It would be my first choice size wise.

If I build mobile bases for my bigger machines and store them at the end of the shop , it may be possible to fit a 4x8 .
Personally I actually hate 5x5 sheets ,as my arms are short , and I have a hell of a time picking them up .
But the way I want to setup my shop , a 5x5 would be an ideal footprint , and the extra foot I’d get both ways as opposed to my first idea of 4x4 may come in handy.
Not sure how much the extra foot of gantry will effect stiffness though

Rainman: if you wait a bit they may come out with a 5x6 or larger still.

the 5 x 5 (or 1.5m x 1.5m) is made with all hardwood core laminations, and has a whole lot more layers than most of the standard 4x8 sheets. If you want something comparable in 4 x 8 sheets, you have to look at appleply https://www.statesind.com/product/appleply

You can custom order any size you like , although I’m sure you can’t exceed 5’ for the X axis, as it wouldn’t be stiff enough obviously.

I seen they had a 5x10 , so when I talked to Cory I knew a 5x5 would be an easy option.
It jumped from $4100 for a 4x4 to $5000 for a 5x5 at the time .
But since my request, I see they’ve just added a 5x5 to there page. And as of later this week , the prices have jumped up. I knew that was imminent though.

Maybe I can phone Cory and see if he’ll give me last Wednesday’s prices lol
