Couple of months ago our garage burnt to the ground, taking my LR2 with it While we lost some things more important, was pain to lose all the time put into the LR2 as I had only had it up and running for less than a year !
The LR2 ran well for me, I did need to add side rails to keep it running straight and reprint a few parts that cracked due to me overtightening.
So now I need to start the journey again I am deciding whether to build an LR3 or get something like a LongMill. Advantage of LongMill is less time for me to get going and probably more rigid than LR3 ? Advantage for LR3 is that I can redo my 1500mm x 600mm cut size that I had before, which worked well for me, but I could probably live with 1200x600.
Since the LR3 looks more rigid than LR2 - does that translate into slightly higher feedrates ? Any other benefits people are finding with LR3 ?
