Foreman detailed sizing


I am hoping to find more detailed measurements for the foreman. The spec sheet has the measurement from the outside of the dragchain to the opposite steppermotor. I need the rail to rail size and it’s height

I also would LOVE to know how large a table to build for proper/ease of use. Also the distance from the home position to the forward edge of mounting brackets.


I need this too. My table design has the CNC sitting below a work table. I either have to make a wild-a** guess or start building the day it arrives. There’s no reason to keep this a secret. The dimensions are known, release them.

Indeed, it is concerning

X = 70 inches
Y = 75 inches
Z = 25 inches

These measurements include room for wires, motors, and the screen being in the fullest extended forward position.


Thanks for the reply, I’m confused those measurements are larger than the footprint, I’m only looking for exactly what is printed for the other machines here

it’s been posted for a while:

Are the dimensions of the elite journeyman the same as the X50 journeyman?

I haven’t found any other drawings, but for footprint the above linked drawing shows the two significant measurements.

“A” for the Foreman (including drag chains) is in that image linked, 64.05 inches.

On the inside from Y to Y, yes, but on the outside no, as the Foreman’s measurement is wider to include the drag chains and different stepper motors.

As I said in my first post, I’m not looking for that measurement, Im looking for “B”. The same measurement that is listed for every other machine but the foreman. Not looking to be rude, but I can’t understand why this is so complicated, just looking for the same spec sheet the other machines have.

Sorry, I didn’t read that you wanted the INSIDE rail dimension. It’s exactly the same as the Journeyman as it uses the same X rail. I’ve seen this mentioned in a few threads so far.

The height isn’t offered for the rail in that drawing, but it’ll also be the same - the slider is going to be different.

I don’t work for nor have anything to do with 1F, but I don’t expect it’s a matter of difficulty, it’s a matter of time. No one has put together the drawings yet so they’re not available to link/post. The machines aren’t out yet while the others, for which there are drawings, have been out for a long time.

Thanks! That’s helpful. I did want outside measurements but I’ll take what I can get at this point

Thank you this will definitely help!

Thanks, this will help.

To answer a question i was having somewhere… it looks like it will fit on a full sheet of 5x5 baltic birch (1/32 of each side would hang out on the x, but thats a few pieces of paper…)

For those fishing for enclosures, heres the height.
All information found in the manual just released


Maybe this has been answered somewhere, but I was hoping someone could show the maximum cut/engrave area in relation to the elite foreman’s footprint. And hopefully with dimensions relative to one of the Y-axis feet.

btw - using an 80mm spindle
