I have completed the assembly and am waiting on the back-ordered controllers. I bought a 750mm deck to aid in dealing with the diabetes-induced neuropathy in my hands so I can keep doing things. I am combing the forum for advice on doing low-relief carving in wood and engraving in metals (brass in my case). I am also going to experiment with leather carving and other materials for a wide variety of projects. I am a rabid designer and will probably work the heck out of my X-Carve! Any and all feedback/advice is welcomed and I am very pleased to participate in this forum!
