Re: Poll: What accessories, jigs, and shop gear are on your holiday wish list?

Yesterday I cleaned my shop from a large project. I had to vacuum off my dust collector. Something is very wrong here.

Re: Are CNC machines ready for Fine Woodworking?

I read in some of these posts that people think that because it doesn't take as much time to cut something with a cnc that the value goes down. I think it is forgotten that to do quality work on a cnc, with the imagination that goes with it, can take years to learn. That has much value!

Re: Are CNC machines ready for Fine Woodworking?

I built a cnc a few years back and use it often to cut delicate parts and signs. I use it for shelf pins, duplicate parts in pieces of furniture, and just about anything else I want. Your imagination is the limit within the limits of the size of the machine. I even used it once to fit a tapered barrel into a homemade stock. The barrel fit perfect without even an air gap in the taper. This could have been done by hand but it only took me 1 1/2 hours to write the 3d program and cut the stock. I have never used it for mass production yet. Mostly fine furniture. I think CNC's are no different than the chisel being invented out of steel. No one I know wouldn't use it just because the stone age guys didn't have one. Technology is great!
