Truly amazing. I have made several stocks over the last few years and have often thought how much easier it would be if I had even just the interior parts milled out with a CNC, but to do the entire stock is even better. I bet these machines are producing a stock in about 1-2 hours, mine take about 20-25…

Yeah, it is amazing. I think it is pretty cool how the machine changes its own bits and moves all different ways. In about midway through the video, I saw a circular saw blade with the other bits, I wonder what they use that for?
Here is the snapshot of the blade:

Oh yea, I bet they make more than a couple of bucks on how much stuff they produce and how fast they produce it.

Kyles, they use that saw at about 2:12. Yes, CNC is cool to watch. This is merely woodworking via software.
