My next tool

Anyone ever see the new craftsman compucarve machine,pretty neat i think, pick your design on the computer save it to the memory card,pop it in the machine and watch it do the carving all by itself.A little steep in price,retails for $1899.99

check out the video link on the page,shows it in action

Thats pretty cool. Like a CNC mill. The reviews wern't all great, but not everybody thinks the same. I want one but I think I will wait awhile and see if others come out.

I like it but I'm not a fan of the size. I work with bigger stuff and it wouldn't work for me. Just my opinion.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

I have it, like big dave said its limited in size. I use it for quite a bit of signage, and some fancy do-dads here and there on furniture. With signs ive been routering the letters into the boards, running them through the sander then joining them afterwards. Doesnt touch a real cnc tool, but the 2 grand puts it in my shop where the other option is about 20 grand. neat little toy.

I'll try to remember to take a few tomorrow. I usually spend Sunday in the shop.
