Re: Engraving into existing curved objects and intarsia ques

Thanks for your input, fellas. For the CNC machine cutting-width/waste issue, I'm not too concerned, as I suspect by cutting manually I would have been throwing away a lot of spoiled pieces anyways ;) I don't plan on doing super-fine work (there are some that are breathtaking in their complexity).

Re: soundproofing enclosures?

Re: Trim Routers at Princess Auto (Canada)?

I know this is an older thread, but I would be interested. I went to P.A today, looking to see if they had any surplus/refurb'ed equipment (I don't have a ShapeOko yet, but I'm trying to get a feel for how much the consumables will be (I suspect the router/spindle will have to be considered a consum...
