Nice job.. 180 minutes @ $2.00 per minute..hmmm Why didn’t you do the graphic yourself? I looked at those before I bought my Laser. Hardwoods are ok but softwoods don’t turn out goog at all.. so I chose the laser even though it cost a lot more.. Are you happy with it?

woodbridge, we use a shopbot 60×120 with a high frequency 7.5 hp spindle and vac hold down. Ill pm some pics to you.dakremer, 3 hours total machine time. David is that $2.00 per min your rate? the file was purchased for $75.00 and it has paid for itself many many tiimes over as I use this design for alot of projects from mantles to coatracks. I can see where a laser would apeal to some but it would be way to slow for me. It would limit what you could cut and for cabinets to carvings the burnt edges dont cut say the least we are very happy with our cnc , it takes the place of one employee and never calls in sick. we cut EVERYDAY. Im heading to the shop this morning to cut a kitchen out . process 17 sheets of plywood for the boxes and backs we can do 4 sheets an hour with all the dados, shelf pins drawer slide holes, pocket holes .toe kicks.this kitchen will be ready for assembly in less than 5 hours.
