Oh yeah, forgot it also came with a coupon code for $25 off your next order of $50. I was encouraged they offer some styles in smaller sizes than the half sheets I’ve seen mentioned elsewhere.

Water cooled spindle
Seeing all these posts about water cooled spindles and how quiet they are is making me want to spend more money. I don’t do any hard core milling - all wood with a decent mix of 2, 2.5 and 3D carves.

Non-MDF base for the machines
cut it and mount it so the channels run from front–back and machine off an inch or two of the track to allow inserting some sort of clamps which would fit in the existing channels — these would need to be large enough to offer a suitable surface area to provide sufficient strength This website always has coupons for sale for HD and
