I have very similar reservations, however, the sensors would be able to compensate for any positioning slippage due to dust. My bigger concern would be small parts moving or the surface becoming irregular with more complex cuts.

This seems a bit gimmicky, but, maybe for hobby work it is plenty enough machine to handle it.

Still, there is no substitute for the big machines.

As the owner of a real CNC router, I am extremely skeptical of the usefulness of the machine. A rolling device like that could not possibly produce enough lateral force to cut at an acceptable speed. Even if it could, I doubt the ability of the machine to maintain X-Y registry over a long time while cutting a complex design.What happens to the traction when the surface is covered with dust?
