Overall size for Elite Journeyman

Hey all,

in any case you’ll have to evacuate the dust at the closest possible point to the source, i.e. the milling bit. Especially since on the Onefinity CNC machines, the ball screws are open. Oiled mechanics like ball screws are completely incompatible with wood dust, which is why in professional CNC machines for working on wood, the ball screws are enclosed in convoluted rubber gaiters or bellows covers completely.

One user had an enclosure around the machine and a professional dust extraction system, but it extracted the dust from the enclosure through a 12" square portal on top of the enclosure – it did not prevent his ball screw being destroyed in a way like shown above and to leave 5" thick of wood dust in the rear of the machine.
