    Gerry,
    When watching your video i wondered why you were taking such light cuts and thought that could definitely be sped up. Since you said your machine isn't that sturdy, those of us with larger machines would like to be able to do this in one or two passes. As long as that's possible, i'm interested..

    You can do them in one pass, or 100 passes. All up to the user.

    I've been mostly working on getting my business stuff lined up so I can release it.
    I've been working on the manual and website, and making samples for website photos. I hope to get some tutorial videos done this weekend.
    I hope to have a website up and running within the next month.

    Here's a sample in African Mahogany.

    I just skimmed thru it but it looks pretty good. The tutorials look simple enough and the interface looks fairly easy to navigate.

    It's very easy to use.

    If your machine has a jig or fixture mounted, you can go from idea to finished joint in 10 minutes.

    I'll be adding more tutorials.
    The manual is still a work in progress, but it has a lot of images that explain quite a few things.

    Are the new joints going to be included in your $80 release or will they be extra? What about changes or upgrades to existing?
