    It took you 15 years to realize that? Well, at least you finally did.

    If anybody objects to a non-factory hole in any of my machines after I no longer own them, I will send them a can of putty. From the grave if necessary. Case closed.

    For repetitive work either a sub plate as mentioned or dogs and pins.

    After 15 years of owning my R2C3 I finally decided it was my machine, I could drill holes in it if I wanted to, and pinned my vises to the table

    He lists his machines in the New Jersey Craigslist as well. After a while you get tired of flagging them.

    Nope. Take out your letter stamps and mark it "oil". Tap and install pipe plug if desired.

    A linear slide with a pneumatic cylinder to slide the other half of the table into the working area (with another to clamp) could be easy enough to implement into CNC controls.
