Grady and Dave, both of your plans sound doable. The problem I have is finding 5 x 10 mdf, I can get 5 x 8 x1/4 all day long. The thing that kills me from ordering from Thermwood is the freight (Don't get me wrong, I am not knocking Thermwood, It's the freight I have a problem with, and I know with fuel prices like they are now, everything is more expensive to ship). I was going to order a couple sheets last month, but the freight alone was over $125.00. By the time you figure the material and the freight, that is some expensive sheet goods. My sheet good supplier can order it in full bundles, but I do not really need 50 sheets laying around.
Dave, I would be interested in your flycut program also. I under stand Grady's view point also, but for me, my machine is not running a full shift everyday. It just makes since to flycut when its idle.
