We have a 4’ x 8’ CNC where I work. The vacuum hold down is segmented in 4 quadrants. That way we can make a 1/4 jig out 1/4 mdf and cut out 4 – 8, or whatever, plaques, etc. We also have 37” Timesaver abrasive sander which is way awesome and way expensive. We are in CO where the beetle kill pine is abundant. Especially in large quantaties, the pill KILLS the belts. We have to take them to a car wash and spray them with the hose at close range to take off the sap. It’s a pain. When my boss knows we won’t be able to fulfill an order, he tells the customer they can be pissed now or be pissed off later. Don’t overcommit if you think you can’t do it…....or just invest in those pricey machines.
