    Just as a cursory opinion, your price is WAY too high. You could buy a brand new machine from SB for less than that. A more reasonable price would be somewhere in the $12k-$15k range. Even that would...

    Of course you won't "name names". That's so typical of the straw dog arguments that circulate on the internet. I call this type of complaining "Fact free whining." I suggest posting it in "Truth...

    I'd love to know what model you bought and what it set you back. Looks like a huge upgrade to the SB, and the SB isn't even in the same league.

    If you open any cutting file, you'll see examples of how to use goto and tag. If you look at the C5 command, it has an example of a pause. I've used the method you describe for cutting numerous parts...

    I've read countless threads on this topic and one thing always glares at me. When bringing up the straw dog of the competition, I never read brand name and model numbers. It's easy to say "When there...

    I have the two HP version of this machine and it's a workhorse. I've had it since 2013. If I didn't already have one, I'd be on this like white on rice.

    There's an upgrade from Shopbot that might be available directly from them. It changes out the entire gantry and has upgraded rails and more stability. For a giant machine like that, you might...

    Scanning is a lot more than the device. It's also the software behind it. From what I've seen, unless you're spending $20k or more, the system is likely to be suboptimal. I've tried a number of these...

    Afraid that was nearly 10 years and several computers ago.

    I suggest buying a couple of cheap covers, new ones, in several sizes. Find which one covers your outlets and switches completely (there...

    One of my first projects was making a number of oak switch and outlet plates for our family room. They turned out pretty nice. Very simple to model.

    It's actually quite common, at least for the owners of older cars. It takes a certain amount of DIY to keep from being bankrupted by specialist technicians and parts companies. If you've ever owned a...

    Silicone is probably the better choice if you're going to make the mold on the wall as it won't stain, won't stick to anything except itself (wax the items to be cast with Partall #2), and is likely...

    I suggest making a silicone (silicone is easier than urethane) mold and casting them in either a resin or plaster. Making a mold is pretty straightforward and what comes out should be very close to...

    I'm making a prototype of a future product and one of the things I needed was a right angle pipe with a certain dimension. The part is going under the hood of a car, so has to be rugged. The pipe...

    The indexer can be used as a fancy, rotating, holddown so maybe it has more use than you think!

    That is one big machine! From what I've seen as asking prices on this forum, you're looking at about 50% depreciation at least, probably more since the machine is 10+ years old. You will probably...

    I think one probable reason why these configuration files get corrupted is from shutting down a computer by putting it to sleep, then while it's asleep, the power fails or the computer resets itself...

    Rocco - I had the same opinion when I bought mine back in 2013. I've had virtually no problems that weren't caused by fluctuations in the actual power so I'm a happy camper.
