One thing that is often asked for (by members and non-members) is a CNC router and I wanted to open up a conversation about that. Like, who thinks we should have a cnc router (bigger than desktop) and would want to be part of planning that out and/or deciding on features etc.
An example of the kind of questions might be:
Is this interesting?
How big is the right big?
What features are important? (power, speed, accessories, etc)
What manufacturers are out there?
What other stuff would IG need in place to make it kick ass? (dust collection? training? etc)
Full disclosure: a very generous individual donor has offered to sponsor this project with a funding match. So while cost is a factor, it shouldn’t rule out something which is most appropriate tool for the job.
What do folks think?
