Need some help understanding what's compatible with your X-Carve CNC machine? This page is for you... Below we've collected the best PwnCNC accessories that can dramatically improve your experience with X-Carve and your overall CNC workflow.
There are two types of dust boots and which one you choose greatly depends on a few factors.
Z-Independent boots hover over your stock allowing your router to move freely in the Z direction. These type of boots are perfect for 2.5D carving like simple signs.
Router mounted boots attach directly to your router and moves in the Z direction. These type of boots are perfect for 3d carving.
Z-Independent Bracketing? Yes... you will need bracketing with your Z-Independent dust boot. We have the perfect z-independent bracketing system for your older stock X-Carve as well as upgraded X-Carves.
PwnCNC revolutionized the CNC dust collection market by releasing the first of its kind "under-the-gantry" or "rear-loading" dust boot design.
Rear Loading (our v2/v3 designs) gives you the greatest visibility and access to your router, but these features come at a cost... reduced Z capacity. When it comes to X-Carve that means you must have a raised gantry for our v2/v3 designs to work optimally. There are a few ways to raise the gantry, but the Inventables Upgrade kit is highly recommended.
Front Loading (our v4 design) gives you a great z-independent boot and requires no Z capacity to make it work. This is perfect if you're cutting very thick stock or haven't upgraded your stock X-Carve yet.
Alternatively our v7 design offers a router mounted boot that also takes up no Z capacity and will work great on any X-Carve machine.
Z-Independent Rear-Loading Dust Boot perfect for shop vacs.
Z-Independent Rear-Loading Dust Boot perfect for dust collectors.
Z-Independent Front-Loading Dust Boot also perfect for shop vacs.
Router Mounted Front Loading Dust Boot will work with either shop vacs
or dust collectors
As an extension of our dust boots, we've naturally progressed into improving your dust hose management. The following products are highly recommended and fully compatible with X-Carves.
If your machine is in tight quarters (up against a wall or something), you'd be very interested in our extension adapter which comes with both a 45deg (pictured) or a 90deg adapter and extends as far as 3 inches.
When it comes to plastic dust boots, you want to ensure you have good control over your dust hose. Our Ultimate Hose Clamp is the right tool for this job. If you're using a rear mounted boot, we'd recommend the XXL arm... but if you're using a front mounted boot, pickup the XL arm.
What's on the end of your hose matters... a lot! So we've designed many adapters that all convert our proprietary "squared circle" adapter to a variety of extractors.
This includes one specially made for the X-Carve's stock hose.
We've taken our super strong magnets and created an awesome way to manage your dust hoses around the whole shop. We offer a growing variety of attachments.
We've designed a bunch of products over the years. The very first product we released was our Lever Clamp. This clamp was overwhelmingly popular and helped fuel the PwnCNC revolution.
Our first and best product hands down. Our Lever clamp has so many uses regardless of the thickness of your stock. You should always have a few of these in your collection.
When it comes right up to the edge.. how do you hold? We hold using our Toe clamps.. the perfect clamp.
Slide to the left... our push clamps are the perfect pairing to our HD Fences. They allow you to press stock from the side right into your fences for a secure hold.
Add repeatability to your carving operations with a set of our HD Fences. These are plastic which means accidents don't have to end in disaster.
These high quality steel t-track nuts are the perfect choice for the Inventables modular waste board.
When you really need to reach for your stock.

As we use our X-Carve we often find products that improve our experience... here's a few very interesting products designed exclusively for the X-Carve.
When we're getting creative without our dust boot attached our belts can get pretty dusty. To help us from loosing steps and further keep our machine clean, we've designed these stepper covers with integrated brushes.
Stop Collars are the perfect addition to your CNC experience. No more setting the Z with each bit-change, these stop collars help you set the bit within your router perfectly every time.
This is one of most popular products!
Just like our Stepper Covers, this Z-Cover helps protect the top of your carriage.
If you are still using the belt Z carriage, then this cover is exactly what you need to protect the Z belt.
Are you needing to tram your machine to ensure it's perfectly perpendicular to your bed? Then this is the simplest and easiest tool to use for this job.
How about an innovative wrench that is perfect if you own a Dewalt or Makita palm router.
This wrench features a "nut catch" to prevent you from dropping the router nut onto your waste board.
Spindles are the ultimate in power, control, and versatility. Adding a spindle to your CNC machine can dramatically improve the experience you have when cutting a wide variety of materials.
This ain't your friends amazon special, no sir... this is a high quality custom designed product made specifically for our hobby CNC machines by a small business right here in the heart of the United States.
Although the individual parts are manufactured across the globe, answers to your questions will come from the PwnCNC team... and we use these on our own machines almost daily.
You're also buying into an echo system of products. We are continuously looking for ways to increase value and improve the workflows with our spindles. This means product upgrades are regularly being researched and tested to bring you the absolute best experience.
This is a drop-in spindle kit ready made for your X-Carve. It replaces your Dewalt or Makita router with something far more powerful and capable.
Do you have the 69mm DeWalt router mount installed onto your X-Carve. This plastic spacer will reduce that down to 65mm to perfectly hold our spindles.
Did you order the Water Cooled spindle? These connectors provide a no-leak connector for your coolant lines.
