Southpaw submitted this, which he saw on a TV ad. From the ad: “The Craftsman CompuCarve is a compact, computer-controlled, 3-dimensional woodworking machine with an easy-to-use interface that allows even a novice to craft wood and other soft materials like a pro. In addition to its one-of-a-kind carving capability, the unique configuration of the machine allows it to perform many other woodworking functions, including cutting and contouring, jointing and routing.”
Holy s%$*. If there was one tool I wish’d been under the tree, this would likely be it. If we had one of these in the shop, there’d be no stopping us.
They seem to have been released a bit early, though, as Sears is totally out of stock — even at the low, low price of just $1900. Kidding aside, under $2k isn’t bad for you-draw-it-and-it-makes-it capabilities.
Hopefully we’ll get a look at one of these sometime this year.
