What does everyone use their shapeoko for, do you make money with it.

I use mine for building electric guitars. Right now it's just a hobby.

No longer have a Shapeoko, but use a machine of my own design...

I use mine to make various things I sell in my Etsy store.

Do I "make money" with it? Technically not really since most of the money I make with it gets plowed back into my hobbies.

It pays for itself and some other hobby stuff. But it's not my day job.

Not making money with it. Plans are eventually signs, guitars, etc.

Looking forward to making some robot parts with it for my son's robotics team (FTC 7314!)

Go FIRST! My daughter was on team 2129 for four years and I mentored the team for about 8 years. Sadly this was before I had a Shapeoko.
