  1. Good value for money, needs some tweaking to work optimally.

    Posted by Unknown on 1st May 2020

    I bought the large kit with 5.5W laser upgrade. If you buy the laser upgrade with the kit then read through both construction manuals before assembling anything. It's much easier to assemble both at the same time. My machine wasn't cutting square and holes were cutting oval. This was because the Y carriage plates weren't square with the X-Axis V-Slot profile so they pulled out of alignment when tightening the nuts and bolts holding them together. The extrusions are not cut accurately so not only are they slightly skew on the edges where they were cut but they have burrs on them. I removed the burs with a needle file and used shim stock and a machinist square to square up the X-Axis. The exact same issue caused the Lead Screw plate and V-Slot profile to be out of alignment so I had to debur and shim that as well. This misalignment caused a lot of additional friction on the lead screw and no amount of alignment with the bearing block made any difference. I now have the machine setup very nicely and I am happy with my purchase. For the low price paid I wasn't expecting the machine to be perfect, and it isn't, but if you are willing to do a bit or work and spend some time setting it up then it's good enough to do really nice work and make some money on the side.

  2. Good overall machine

    Posted by Johan on 8th Jan 2020

    So far very satisfied. I had an initial issue with where easel was not seeing the machine and steppers started to move as soon as you plug in the USB and power on. I went to the Boksburg branch and the sorted it real fast and the service was excellent as usual. Thank guys :)

    Just a tip for future buyers. When including the laser with the machine, check both assembly guides and do wiring and solid relay installation at the same time when you are building the machine. That way you don't have to disassemble parts to fit the laser components

  3. Assembling the Kit

    Posted by Pieter van Zyl on 16th Dec 2019

    The kit's components are generally well made and well labelled. I needed to file the brackets for the stepper motors before they would fit.
    The instructions are clear but do contain a few errors and it is a pity they are only available on the internet. One has to arrange for a PC/laptop/tablet with an Internet connection where the machine will be assembled.
    My biggest concern has to do with the tolerances of the 3D printed components. I have not finished the build, but I do believe that there is a lot of unnecessary friction and misalignment stress introduced by the 3D printed component associated with the Z-axis stepper motor drive.

  4. Nice machine

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Nov 2019

    Very happy with the machine. Sales person was very help some and answered all the questions and more. Delivery was as requested with no hiccups. Clear and easy understandable assembly instructions with clear pictures.

  5. Great product for the price but it has issues.

    Posted by Hein Mcleod on 21st Aug 2019

    I ordered the large variant of the Cron CNC. Everything was well packaged and even included some spare bolts and nuts. The online manual was easy to follow even though there was one typo (16T and 20T gears). My one main issue with this machine was the side plates that makes up the frame and bed. These plates are split according to the size you order (6 plates for the large CNC) and I was unlucky enough to receive 6 plates that weren't identical. This cause the frame to not be 100% square and the MDF boards didn't line up to bolt down. I'm sure the small and medium machines won't have the same issues.

  6. Cron Craft in another league

    Posted by Dawid Farber on 15th Aug 2019

    Even though I have some technical experience, I have MS. It took me 3 days working on and off to assemble the machine.
    I would guess any healthy person that can read, would not take more than a day.

    All Parts fit perfectly, wires fit, everything is marked in exact detail, down to the nuts and washers.
    The assembly instructions is comprehensive and in detail. Not just that, perfect detail.

    If I could work more than one machine I would buy more.
    Could you provide more software options best suited for this machine.
    Thank you

  7. 9.5 out 10

    Posted by St. Paul Pens on 8th Aug 2019

    Amazing intro into the world of cnc. The only way this can be improved is maybe to add a drop of silicone grease with the machine to apply to the lead screw during assembly. Thank you for the great product, the laser and router has a permanent spot in St. Paul's workshop.

    Don't forget to purchase a few V bits with the machine to start engraving. Contact me for further info on my experience: 082 528 1693

  8. What a great kit

    Posted by Jimmy Reynolds on 28th Jun 2019

    Superbly thought out kit. Really enjoyed putting it together.
    Even the wiring was a breeze. Plugged it in and it worked perfectly. First cuts were great. look forward to challenging myself with more complex designs now.

  9. Bubble wrap is a curse !

    Posted by Eddie on 4th May 2019

    Packing the small pieces in bubble wrap and then sticking it together with clear sticky tape!
    One cannot see the joints and it is impossible to unpack
    I wish the sticky tape had a colour so one can see where to pull it off the bubble wrap.

  10. CNC

    Posted by Harry Stapelberg on 27th Aug 2018

    to keep the guide wheels and runner clean.
