XTool RA2 Pro Tilt Mechanism Kit
Upgrade your XTool RA2 Pro rotary attachment with the parts as seen in the video above. The video begins at the timestamp where the tilt mechanism is being assembled and installed. Continue watching the video to see engraving examples using this upgrade.
The XTOOL RA2 Pro is a very versatile rotary attachment that is compatible with more than just the XTOOL cutters and engravers. It can be used on other branded machines as well.
Despite being quite versatile as-is, the RA2 pro is missing a key feature that is incredibly important for engraving objects with non-uniform profiles. It lacks the ability to tilt which would allow you to keep the section of the workpiece profile parallel to the x-axis travel. Therefore, along the section you want to engrave your laser will lose focus and result in a less sharp image.
Of course you can wedge materials under the base and try and find the perfect sized object to fit underneath but this can be frustrating and not very precise or repeatable. This tilt mechanism kit allows you to continuously adjust the position up to 40 degrees both ways. Other tilt kits on the market often just lift the metal base in one direction only. Additionally, other kits lift the end of the base. This kit mounts the main assembly on top of the T-slot profile and allows you adjust the center of mass above the base so that there is no risk of the assembly tipping over.
The other benefit to the tilt mechanism kit is that it raises the workpiece higher above the metal base. Work pieces with large handles will now clear the base. You can also slide the whole assembly farther away from the base for extremely large handles to completely clear the base while not tipping the assembly over.
To compensate for the higher assembly build, four leg extensions are included to raise the whole XTOOL D1 / PRO machine an appropriate amount.
