    No, I don't believe I have a thread specifically on it, but I started with it about the time I put in my MiniSplit and ordered my CNC machine. My shop ceiling got R30 insulation and then I stapled up...

    I've had the pleasure of working with Brady's output. He's a really good person to at lease consult with about the possibilities for that particular part you need to figure out a solution for.

    The biggest challenge with sourcing material like that is less about drying it, which most folks can do properly if they want to; rather, it's more about insuring over time that it doesn't have...

    Just remember that for those of us who do use CNC...it's just one tool and we still have to do all the finesse work on any parts a machine like that cuts. For me, it's the best of both worlds, but I...
