JAAune, I said ”I will not say that a CNC will replace any dedicated tool but it will certainly augment the tools you have at your disposal.” A CNC will increase the capabilities and the skill set of your business.

And, if I understand what you meant, I have to agree with you that their is no substitute for proper planning as to what tools to use at what time. Secondary operations should be kept to a minimum and moving pieces back and forth between operations is poor planning.

If you don’t try new technology you might as well take a hammer, not a nail gun, and nail you feet to the floor.

And, I am coming down hard on you because of your condescending remark ”Read Woodweb for a serious dose of salty realism on the business.” as you appear to have little respect to fellow lumberjocks be they in business, professional, or hobbyist.
