    Default Very Happy with Shopbot...

    Thanks a bunch to the Shopbot team and their great machines. We have ran our Desktop almost non-stop every day for the past two years. It is a work horse!

    Also need to thank the gurus on this forum. Thanks so much for contributing your expertise. You guys have made the learning curve much shorter for many of us. (I need to get around to finally reading the Manual.)

    It took a full two years but we've been able to pay for the Desktop two times over with our production.

    We will be purchasing a second Desktop this year.

    get around to finally reading the Manual There's a manual?

    I've had my machine for 10 plus years and I learn something new almost every time I run it. In those times when I get stumped, tech support or the happy gang here always gets me through.

    I am so happy I chose ShopBot. Russ

    HA! Dave
    I separated the entire top from the pallet, removed one side for wheelchair access, and after gluing 3/4 ACX on top of it...use it as sanding/finishing/and occasionally a safe display area for Bob Rickard's work when he visited
