    Hello all, I had some small items left over from various things I've done around the house recently and decided to gather them up to take back to Home Depot.

    Two Year Old Camaster Stinger III

    Thread Starter: Ronald Blue

    I have a locally available Camaster Stinger III. It's a 4 X 8 machine with a three head setup. Whats the benefit of the three head arrangement? Is it an alternative to an ATC system? What's a fair price? He says it was $18,000 new. He's discounted it a lot from that amount. Nearly half. He did say...

    Shapeoko - XXL - Anybody running one?

    It's always wiser to buy the right CNC for you, the first time. It is cheaper in the long run. That said, I totally understand a budget and there are

    Sharpen this blade?

    I think my Freud blades have that little curlicue in the slots that your blade shows. Last time I needed it, my sharpeners charged $5 to replace a tooth,
