Thread: Benchtop ShopBot

  1. #16
    Looks like SMC went from Keith having the only ShopBot to a lot of ShopBot owners!

    Keith, how about a list of ShopBot owners (or just CNC Routers) like the laser engravers list. Could just be a section at the end of the current list.

    David, I had some of the same thoughts on size of work area, but really didn't want to build another room to add the larger machine. Most of what I have done has been smaller things such as games, small signs, models and fixtures. I have been wanting a ShopBot for years and the sale price on the Benchtop was too much to resist so I did it. If I get requests for larger things later I can build out another room and do it when it makes sense. I would rather play than build rooms right now! I almost have mine running. A wood floor job for my better half had priority this past weekend or it would have cut something. I just have to finish wiring and loading software and it will be ready. I can then retire my old CNC prototype.

    Ed, good idea for CNC list. It could be a great resource.

    Yea, that would be a good idea on the CNC list. Any chance Keith?

    Well I just placed my order for a Shopbot Benchtop a couple of hours ago. Though it won't be here till end of September. I can't wait and am very excited. Thanks, Oscar

    Be sure to send a birth announcement and pictures of the new addition to the family. When can I come and use it?

    Way to go Oscar! It will keep you up at night thinking of things to do with it. Good to see another ShopBot in Texas! I just got my 120 degree V-Bit today from Her-Saf so I can see what it will do tomorrow. (Ron Brown's Texas Star I hope!) I have to work in the shop all day tomorrow making some fixtures for work. I am sure I will learn something new about the Bot doing that. Let us see the pictures when you get it.
