Thanks

I have been running for a couple of months, mostly weekends, on HDPE, UHMWPE, acrylic, and various woods. Rarely for more than a few hours at a time. This weekend, doing aluminum, I was cutting for maybe 6 hours straight. Then dead.

Not sure if the Dewalt will be better, but I expect it will be, and it is cheaper. To bad my local Home Depot and Lowes and McGuckin don't stock it anymore. Ordered it online from Amazon. The large motor should be better, but the noise may force me to move the Shapeoko out of the house.

I will try the warrantee thing, as I like the tool, at least for hand held work.

A quick update. Dewalt showed up, and is now cutting 1/2" aluminum stock, at a much more aggressive pace than I did the Proxxon. Much more powerful. But much, much louder. Family is not happy with sound, but the tool is solid. Unsure of longevity.
