Hi,
I purchased 5.5W benbox raser, to find no manuals.
I found U tube which is very helpful, and animated manuals by the supplier, however too fast to see.
Thus I made the written manuals, made for me.
I did not burn any yet, so expect a few errors in the manuals.

3parts: to be under 4MB limit.

1.assemble,
2.rom update, install driver
3. G code sender manual

There are a couple of videos on the forum that show the assembly quite well..
If Google videos are used ..yes..they are too fast but can be slowed down and the background music muted......

The two shown below are very good.

does anyone know what to do with the 2 x black plastic channels (7 mm wide x 5 m tall x 190 mm long)? They seem to fit into the groove where the wheels run, but I would have thought there would be 3 X.  Are they just decoration, or serving a purpose?

They are used to hold the motor cables in the grooves on the back and sides, they do help prevent them snagging as the gantry moves back and forth.

I have been about this for sometime. 
The answer I get, is that IT IS ALL on the forum in the relevant sections.    It is  -  but it takes a he** of a time  roaming thro the forum and not everyone has the time  ( I have fortunately as I am retired) but its still a PIA.

I added a Manuals and Documentation section in the Kit Assembly board.
