Truly amazing. I have made several stocks over the last few years and have often thought how much easier it would be if I had even just the interior parts milled out with a CNC, but to do the entire stock is even better. I bet these machines are producing a stock in about 1-2 hours, mine take about 20-25…

Yeah, it is amazing. I think it is pretty cool how the machine changes its own bits and moves all different ways. In about midway through the video, I saw a circular saw blade with the other bits, I wonder what they use that for?
Here is the snapshot of the blade:

Bill,
Oh yea, I bet they make more than a couple of bucks on how much stuff they produce and how fast they produce it.

Kyles, they use that saw at about 2:12. Yes, CNC is cool to watch. This is merely woodworking via software.

Looks like a giant ball end mill to me.

Interesting video! I used to have my designs made on CNC machines, but the wood tools move a bit higher RPM.

I just purchased a Hogue overmolded thumb hole stock. I started making a first article with pine, but decided that the amount of new bits and such for my router were going to cost more than that stock. I’ll use that stock and see how much my shooting improves (I’m shooting ~192/200, but am looking for a bit better). The wood stocks cost $360+ and that’s for laminated. I already have a standard laminated stock, but to me, laminated is just a fancy name for plywood, even if all the grain is running in the same direction. I eventually want to end up with a real solid wood stock, like walnut or mahogany that I could do a little carving on (not checkering- that’s a whole bunch more money I don’t want to spend!). :D

Kyle, can you tell us where the video came from, so that Ragde57 can get a bit like he’s asking about?
