Today it’s a good day to make de run into our shops.

Juste one ballon and some pieces of plywood … and let’s go !

Here is a small video to see it in action ! Vroooom …

@TheWoodenOyster, I think there good things in european style machines as in american style machines … then, maybe the future of woodworking machinery is to merge all of good ideas in a single smart machine style ?
