That’s one neat bit of machinery, what is the spindle opposite for? Barley?

You would not get that repeatability manually.

Wow Larry! I haven’t seen this machine before. Do you sit in your chair with a cold one while the work is being done?

How about a video on the engraving to help visualize all your work better?

Did you cut out the plastic on the CNC or laser?
