$795.00$1,126.00

The WorkBee is a culmination of all our experience, feedback, and suggestions from selling the OX CNC Machine.

Based on C-Beam, V-Slot, Xtreme Solid V-Wheels and Tr8*8(P2) Lead Screws it is strong, accurate and reliable.

Please note:

  • High Torque Stepper Motors are recommended with the 2.2kW Water Cooled Spindle.
  • With the GRBL Controller bundle we recommend using external stepper drivers when pairing with High Torque Stepper Motors in order to utilise them at their maximum capacity.
