The Cobra CR-408 has a cutting area of 61" x 97" x 8". Does the ATC tool area count against that number? More importantly, can I cut either 4' x 8' and 5' x 5' sheets?

It can give you a better yield and certain things only come 5' wide.
5 Foot,, with only nerves left in 4 of ten fingers (to many table saw accidents)

A 408 is 48 x 95 (unless I am Mistaken) We cut 61" melamine and the loss factor is minimal when compared to 4 foot material plus i always loved the extra table space

I thought the same thing and that is consistent with my Panther specs. But, the 61" x 97" cutting area on the CR-408 states 61" x 97" on both the website and my quote, as well as, in a phone call with sales. I think I'll confirm it again, because at that cutting area it should be a CR-508

Have you asked CAMaster about lubrication on the new Elite series? I noticed Thomas just introduced the series in a Sticky post. Someone immediately asked about lubrication, and I was eagerly waiting to read the response. Today the question is removed and the thread closed. That's a little unsettling. After all the discussion of lubrication on this forum, it would be extremely disappointing if they neglected to improve it on their latest and greatest machine.

I asked today, I do not expect it to be any different than the current Cobra.

I confirmed it once again with sales: the CR-408 Elite has a 61" x 97" cutting area.

Tell me why this pump would be better. I could sell my current pump with the CNC, but what would the Becker 10hp pump do better than the FPZ 15hp?

I've already figured out to onion skin cut my smaller parts and then do a final pass. What would I do different with the Becker?

Has anyone here been involved in, or contributed to, or had any conversations at all about the new upgrade to the Cobra Elite? I was told to ask my questions here, but the first Camaster post on the Cobra Elite was posted yesterday (10/17). The post has the same info as the website.

Hey Charlie,

Yes, the lubrication on the Cobra Elite is different. The Cobra Elite comes with grease fittings (grease zerks) on all bearings and ballscrew. This gives the operator access to every grease point with just a grease gun. This makes lubrication and maintenance of your machine much faster and much simpler.
