    I have run a few projects now, mostly flat, but a couple of rotary just to test myself.
    Still figuring out how I really want things setting.
    I have not had a lot of time, honey do list takes priority.
    I have the rotary on the right hand side, front to back. But is easy to remove if I need the space.
    The way I am setting up my locating system and macros for tool height and location, moving it to where it is handy depending on jobs is pretty easy.
    I can not add any photos now, but will soon.

    Ok, I know I promised more photo's
    here are a couple.
    Been making a few signs here and there
    and just trying to work with the rotary now.
    I just am using this slow time to work out the cobwebs in my head, after all it has been about 25 years since I did this full time.
    I am still working on what tooling I will need to make the things I want to sell. And looking for the raw material I want to use.
    Still happy with the way I put all this together,
    the machine and software just keep doing what it is told to do,
    which is bad as I sometimes do not tell it the right thing to do.

    I also did a few things for us
    The tool caddy is called "Colletsium"
    I have seen this on the Avid site and also inventables.

    Nice mirror! Is that real glass? And how did you add the text to personalize it?

    That is mirror material from Johnson Plastic - LBAUS106
    I laser it on the back and color fill
    It could just as easily be routed on the back and color filled too.
    I have used other colors for special projects and they work just fine as well.

    You could try to use a glass mirror and laser the front or back of it. If you did the back it should be a flat white color but you could paint it to make it a different color. If you really wanted to get creative you could add LED lighting behind it and a simple momentary switch on the handle so it would light up when the user held the handle.
