I have a couple of projects that an xcarve would definitely come in handy for. Unfortunately I don’t really have the space for one and buying it to use for a couple of projects just doesn’t make sense. Perhaps there is someone in Connecticut who would be willing to rent their xcarve to me by the hour? Or carve a few files for me at a reasonable price? I live in the Hartford area.
Did you try a local Hackerspace?
I am very close, what are you carving??
