Learn how to build a huge 4×8 CNC router, the 4×8 PRO 4896 from AVID CNC! I’ll go over setting up dust collection for the CNC, getting the machine assembled, setting up Mach4, squaring the table and gantry, and tramming the spindle. In my next video, I’ll show the process of setting up the vacuum workholding, as well as a t-track fixturing table, so stay tuned for that next week!

  1. Hey man i know this is an old video but did you have any issues with your liner rails on the sides binding the bearings at the seams? One side of my machine the rails have a really noticable bump as they pass over the seams actually stopping the bearing when i move them by hand

  2. Hi, maybe stupid question but would it be possible to fit the pro4896 in a tight space so the only access is from one lenght side. Or do you need access to all around the machine

  3. nice vid. looks like a nice rig. after checking your link, they are heavily overpriced. just the 4 nema / driver kit is $3k. you can get a stepcraft q408 completely built and delivered for $15k. after i saw the $3k they want for $600 worth of steppers i quit considering it. It is a nice rig either way and i wouldnt mind putting it together if it actually saved me money.

  4. God bless you guys who actually do the videoing of the build process. I’m the type to be more inclined to just build any project than worry about videoing/editing & posting! ? I’m in the process of building my second woodworking shop. We just moved to a 10 acre place on a mountain. So I’m dividing a 36’x40’ 4-car garage in half and adding an additional 10’x20’ room off the back. About 920 sq ft of shop when I’m finished. Where’s my video camera? Not! Good luck with your CNC! LOOKS FABULOUS!

  5. This man is doing two man jobs solo without it being featured in a funny titled compilation video.

    If it was me i would somehow single handedly take down my regions power grid and all the surrounding ones too.

  6. I’m about to get my Avid CNC next week. So, I rewatched your video. I have a quick question(s). I also got a Dust Right 1250 collector. I was planning on running a 6” flex hose. How is the 4” working for you? Do you think the 6” would do better? Thanks for the advise.
