Congratulations on your CNC router. I thought the first picture was the room. That’s a pretty good packing crate.

I have been eyeing up the Camaster’s for a while – this dosn’t help any…

Good luck!

Gotta say after a week of cutting on this machine I’m more than happy. For starters the hurricane vac system although a bit loud really holds sheet goods and other material well. The x3 option is well worth the investment, just in time saved by not having to change bits, On my other machine I talked myself into changing bits wasn’t that big of a deal but after not having to do it I couldn’t go back to a single spindle. I have not ventured into the lathe work yet but very soon.

Awesome Dan, I am excited for you. I just sold 240 LF of frameless cabinetry, maybe I will send you my cutlist :)

That is super cool! That is a mondo a axis there. Some serious turning is gonna happen, I suspect.
Congrats. I’ll bet it feels just like Christmas morning unpacking that machine.
It brings back memories :-)

I don’t think I could justify it for a hobby shop.

Mr Ron I’m confused,” hobby shop” is a reference to your set up ? We do this for a living.
