  1. Tina, this is a topic that can get you answers that are all over the place, depending on you location, how you plan to sell, whether you are willing to ship and other variables. But to start you need to figure the cost of all your materials and consumables and then you need to put a value on your time. After that you need to figure a profit margin.
  2. Chris, your responses here on the Forum this past week or so leave a lot to be desired. They really offer nothing to the conversation and are pretty rude to the person that started the thead. I had sent you a PM when I deleted you post in the CNC section but you never read it. So this time I am going to be more public and tell you that this forum has a no jerk policy and if you can follow that you time here will probably be short lived. You comment above does not help her at all so you do you say something like this? Especially to a new member, you don't make her feel welcome with a comment like this one.
  3. I really like that saw till design Brian. If your thinking about new stuff, you might be able to find a little space for keys to a new vehicle, they shouldn't take up that much space.
  4. I have had the saw for about 7 years now with no regrets.
  5. I'll just add this, I have the PCS SawStop with the 1 3/4 HP motor that runs on 110 and it has served me well the only time it struggles is with 8/4 stock of some of the harder woods like maple, wedge or sapele. But by simply slowing down my feed rate it does fine with the cut and no burning. A good blade helps this too.
  6. I use this stuff from Epoch Wood. Two Sided Sandpaper It works out to about .40 a sheet for a 4.5 X 2.75 inch piece. But it's pretty durable and works well for getting in to tight spots and corners. I use the 400 for all my between coat sanding.
  7. Yea Ronn, if you aren't doing large veneers or lamination glue ups it might not be that big of a deal but for what I have used it for so far it really speeds things up even when you add in the few minutes it takes to clean afterwards.
  8. It served you well Robert, now may it rest in piece.
  9. I could see owning a small CNC if I was really into building styles like Queen Anne furniture. I like building furniture but don't really like carving so having a CNC do do things like the shells and other appointments on those designs.
  10. John, just out of curiosity, have you checked any neighboring counties?
  11. That's the thing, the VOC's
  12. Out door fires yes, I wouldn't suggest using pallet wood indoor fires. Pallets, especially ones the come from the food industry warehouses are frequently treated with pesticides and fungicides.
  13. People keep saying that California has banned items but in reality it is usually a county thing. Everything that I hear mentioned by Southern California woodworkers that are banned, I can still by locally were I leave. I think some of it comes from the fact that Southern California had a bigger problem with clean air situations so they are taking big steps now. Come on up for a visit John and we'll go shopping.
  14. The Moderators have moved this thread for those that want to continue the discussion. In the process we have edited the thread to include just the posts that are on topic. We understand that there were differences of opinions but hopefully from this point on it will get back to discussing the pros and cons of CNC in the woodworking world.
  15. There are some out there that you can spend a lot more money on but Morley spoke highly of this one so I thought that I would try it. I am assuming it holds up well because he uses his a lot more then I will be.
