    For some reason I have not received any newsletters from OB. Does anybody have any word on a Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale.
    Id like to place a $700 order but I like to know what they have coming if anything.

    Thanks!

    Looks like they did a really nice discount storewide last year. So I'm going to wait until Black Friday to order. My concern is that what I want is out of stock right now and the site doesn't let you order items that are put out of stock. If black Friday rolls around and items you want are not in stock will OpenBuilds allow you to place a back order anyway to be able to apply the discount code?

    Thanks Rick...looks awesome! Now you have me thinking can I get an even better deal by ordering all the parts separately :) I don't know if I have the gumption to figure it out after all this turkey. Think I'm just gonna go ahead with the parts bundle. Awesome awesome awesome!

    Sounds like a nap is in order. Just remember to set the alarm for midnight. As the fine print says, in stock items only so be sure and get the order in while things are still in stock.

    Mark...you guys are now down one C-Beam Machine. Thanks...was a great price before the sale...now I feel like my wife when she buys shoes on "sale"....I saved money!!! I had a question about the machine that should prob go in another thread...but is there anyway to get any more travel out of the Y axis...believe it or not one of my only hang ups about the purchase was the 11" travel...one of the things I was hoping for was at least a 12" x 12" travel. Thanks!

    Order up an extra 1m section of C-beam and a 1m length of 8mm lead screw, cut them both to around 600mm and swap them out for the 500mm sections provided with the kit. That will give you the distance you seek.

    Kudos to the Openbuilds Parts Store! My Black Friday order arrived today! I sense a Z axis upgrade to my Cebu build coming soon...

    Wow that was fast!
    You must live across the street from their warehouse.
    I placed my order just as the sale began and it still hasnt been processed.
    In all fairness, it was a fairly large order of more than 400 parts.

    The Cyber sale is going great!
    The OpenBuilds Team is packing orders carefully and shipping them out quickly. Everyone is working overtime to ensure that every Builder gets their parts as soon as possible.
    We are super excited to see all the new upcoming builds.
    Thank you for your support to OpenBuilds :thumbsup:

    Actually live several hundred miles and a time zone away... Across the street - now that would be dangerous!
