These brackets support a large drag chain on the Onefinity CNC machines

This is for the brackets only.  The drag chain and aluminum angle for the trough must be purchased separately.

Make sure you select the proper options so that you'll receive the correct brackets for your machine and drag chain.

25x90mm Drag Chain Requires:

- Four lengths of 1/8" thick 1.5" aluminum angle: https://amzn.to/4bI2zj8 (also sold at your local Home Depot or Lowes).  Each run length needs to be approximately 6" longer than the axis it will support.

If you're mounting these to an X50 without stock drag chains, you'll also need:

- Two 70mm M5 cap screws

- Two 80mm M5 cap screws

- Four 85mm M5 cap screws

We print these in carbon fiber reinforced PETG, with 6 wall loops and 40% infill, giving them superior material strength.  More than sufficient to support a heavy drag chain.   

The aluminum angle brackets mount in the same way as the stock brackets.  They interface perfectly with the stepper motor cable connectors, just like the stock brackets.   The drag chain connectors use the original hole on the gantry block and the second hole, which the stock one is not large enough to reach.

If you use a rear-mount dust boot, you may also need an offset adapter so that your dust hose doesn't rub on the drag chain trough.  You can order it as an option or separately, here (https://uglydogwoodshop.com/store/ols/products/pwncnc-v9-dust-hose-offset-adapter).   Or, if you need a rear mount dust boot, the Big Suck works great with aftermarket drag chains.

Some units are made to order and may take a few days to ship.
