Bulkman WorkBee

The WorkBee CNC design has gone through various changes. WorkBee Version 1 originally had leadcrews located in the compression. All WorkBee kits sold by Bulk Man 3D are the latest version, and the main differences are the use of a Tingle tensioning system and longer leadcrews in the X and Y axes. This helps solve the problem of Whipping when for long length or faster speed, which is very common in the CNC machine market.
