Episode 155: Hot Dog Bowl of Knowledge
Dan started working on the farmhouse table top with breadboard ends, building a base for it, making a day bed porch swing, threw out a ton of junk from the shop, and is planning a video.
Pete revamped his 3d printing shop, added a new work bench and is working on another one, unboxed and tested the Bambu X1 Carbon, shot a video around the new printer that he needs to edit, and he’s excited for his vacation next week!
Mike spend a few days at shaper headquarters, got a new fiber laser, got the new CNC in the shop with a vac bed and a tool changer, planning some new dust collection, redoing a bunch of stuff for events rentals, crated out a bunch of items to be shipped out.

I'm looking for some advice about buying a CNC in the future (maybe in the near future). I just fully got into custom furniture and cabinets (I was a carpenter before), and I have some big jobs coming down the pipe. Kitchens for 26 suites (mdf shaker doors). Anyways to the point, I've looked at the price for getting the Avid 4'x8' or 5'x10' about $20,000-25,000 CAD. I want to use it for all kinds of stuff from cabinet doors, slab flattening to engraving, and everything in-between. My question is, do you recommend Avid or something else? And what are some of the expenses/things to know, that come with a buying CNC?

I made a joke reel, and its still blowing up a month later. Have you ever had been in that situation? And what do you do?
If you had to choose one of your former guests as a 4th person for a build off, who would it be?
When y’all are needing workholding for your cncs and you want to use the nailer, get yourself a fiber nailer. It shoots plastic nails that the cnc can plow thru and you won’t f*** up your sometimes expensive bits.
When you’re ready to pull off your material, they’ll pull right off or snap off clean. If they need any cleanup just hit it with an offcut or a chisel and it’s like nothings there.
Gas nailers are pretty common in construction, I’ve seen them mostly as framing nailers. Look up Plasode, they’re legit.
