This is a one piece extruded aluminum spindle carriage. It is designed for our 24VDC spindle, Quiet Cut or any 52mm diameter spindle. This is compatible with X-Carve and Shapeoko 2. The finish is bead blasted and black anodized aluminum. It does not come with hardware.
If you’re mounting this on an X-Carve, the standard hardware would be:
4x .375" aluminum spacers: (one bag of 25312-15)
4x Dual Bearing V-Wheel kit (4x 25203-01)
4x M5 x 35mm Button Head Cap Screw (1x bag 25286-06)

This part is open source and the files can be found here.
We’ve gone far beyond the machine to craft a complete X-Carve experience.
Instructions designed not just to build it, but to learn how the X-Carve works. Material to get you started for your very first carve. And a community of makers at every skill level to provide support and inspiration along the way.
Our free Easel software makes 3D carving accessible to everyone.
Use Image Trace to import any image you want to carve. Draw from scratch using the Pen Tool. Easel’s also compatible with leading design software packages, including Fusion 360, MeshCAM, and Vectric’s V-Carve.
We’re seeing new projects created by the vibrant Inventables community each and every day. Your carving journey may start with engraving, but from there the possibilities are endless.
From toys and guitars, to furniture and even quadcopters, our free Easel software makes it easy to design your own project or apply your personal touch to remake one from our growing gallery.
The X-Controller is included with X-Carve. It features four powerful, four-amp stepper drivers and a heat sink to support long, accurate and precise carves. Encased to keep dust out. Ports to keep wires in. And an emergency stop button in case you need it.
Additionally, carve more consistently with a new wider gantry, featuring thicker walls and less ribs. And benefit from the combination of locking hardware, molded belt clips, and permanent pulleys.
