Hello Forum members,

This is really a great group and I now fell like an official member of the team. It will be awhile before I can offer my 2 cents worth but today is a great day regarding my toys. The Stinger II arrived. Waiting takes forever. I am sure that CAMaster has come through even though I haven't powered up yet. As owners know it is a project just removing the crate/small living quarters. Nice job on the shipment by the way. Plus thanks to CAMaster for the extra touches on the vacuum table.

My residential area was too small for a big truck so I used the recommended method from Joey and others here of a flat bed wrecker. One thing the driver did to help the crate slide down the bed was apply some dish soap and water to the bed of the truck and let if roll down under the crate. Worked really well.

I do some casual woodworking so this is going to be a really nice tool for my hobby. If I can accomplish work that is one-tenth as good as I have seen by some of you I will be really happy.

I have some experience with my best friends Shopbot. He had a really great shop and was a great teacher. However, he moved to Texas so to keep dabbling just a little I had to squeeze something into my garage. If it was an inch bigger in any dimension it would be too big.

I have done mostly furniture for family members that needs some nice decorative pieces, or some lettering under the work to personalize it. A few wood signs. A fun project was building a horizontal mortiser from plans using the cnc to make it precise and easy to assemble. Now I can cut a really precise mortise in the end of a long board, like a bed rail, without standing on top of a step ladder with a router in hand. lol

So, thanks for all you have already taught me while waiting. If you are thinking about ordering a machine be sure it will take a long time to build. Custom machine order entered April 19, received July 9. It will seem like you don't know what is happening during all that time because it is so quiet. But, today was pretty good. I can't wait to plug her in. I am anxious to hear "not" the spindle turning.

Default First Project

Everyone on the forum posts this really great work for their first project. I feel that just completing the spoilboard has been a great project for me. Thanks for the help to those of you out there that have recently been discussing the finer details of zeroing the Z axis. Your comments have been helpful.

Joey and crew did a really nice job when they built it. Far exceeded my expectations.

That's the normal way of business for Camaster. They always go the extra mile.
Now go make some chips with the new toy.
