Nice looking machine Dave! Looks like your building a collection of clamps as well. One can never have to many clamps. Tweakie, my bet goes to Dave as finishing first.

That's coming on really nicely Dave, it's going to be a great machine. You are right nothing CNC ever really gets finished, it is all just work in progress. ;D

Sam,
Betting started at evens but Dave is now the favorite.
Love the website, and the pictures - cant be that long before it's making chips.
(we all speak a different language you know because 'Gas Springs' turns up zilch on ebay UK whereas 'Gas Struts' turns up pages of them  ;D )

Yes, exactly, when woodworking, you can definitely not have enough. That is only one section of my 3 sections of clamps! I have a nice batch of Pony Bar clamps and another section of handspring clamps as well.

Nice guitar build ya got going on. I see allot of cases there, which means you've made quiet a few guitars. I must have missed all the posts where your showing them off!

It's already made chips.......all over the floor. I desperately need to finish up (OK...begin making) the enclosure.

Actually that one was done years ago, and as for the cases, they're not all made by me  ;)

Wow. Simply outstanding. Even the knobs have a birdseye inlay.

But my favorite part is the brass ring fret marker inlays with the birsdseye in each one.  ;D

Thanks,
Dave
