Re: Small signs/plaques

A harder, finer-grained hardwood will help, as will using advanced V carving (if you have a BitSetter), or see:

Re: bit runner

Yes, the v2 should use the same connector, so would still require a control board with the BitRunner connector. I believe the big change will be having the same sort of enclosure as is used for the current controller: https://docs.carbide3d.com/assembly/low-profile-housing/ it's rather over-engineer...

Re: Bit setter question

It is designed to set the tool length offset after a tool change --- insofar as doing that accurately keeps one from cutting into the wasteboard, yes it does.

Re: bit runner

If your controller doesn't have a BitRunner connector (6-pin thing on the opposite side of the power/USB) then you'll need a new controller.

The v1 BitRunner was supposed to be a limited thing (currently in stock), but we did a second batch, and are working up a v2.
