The WorkBee is a super strong, accurate and easy to assemble CNC machine.

It gains its strength by incorporating a combination of C-Beam Linear Rail with multiple uses of the full size Xtreme Solid V wheels!  It’s a great machine and we're sure you will love it!

The OpenBuilds WorkBee Machine is based on the open source WorkBee CNC Machine by Ryan Lock of UK based Ooznest and has become a favorite on OpenBuilds with many different Builds and modifications shared.
