    I like it.
    I did a quick tear down and clean up and it is working great.
    It really is a Speed-Vise.
    It’s super fast and screws down as tight as one wants.

    Digitizing- I don’t have a way to do that.

    I use template paper and all the usual tricks to get under ~1/32” copy of things as I have to hit that or better to make fitup invisible when finished if...

    I haul the barrels of dust/chips to the dumpster.
    I can keep doing that.

    Well I got in the CMT widget and a set of Amanda bits for it so that’s progress anyway.

    CLC is right beside the Roberts where I exchange gas cylinders.
    I peek in and see that current router going through its paces when I’m there.

    Years ago I posted a similar question as the OP.
    The answer was more or less- "take all that crap off the mill table".

    I look at all that stack of mess and think the same here- take the rotary...

    Well I got on the boat yesterday as the owners got all the heaps of stored gear out of where the work is happening.

    If you are anything like my age your upper left arm has a little mark where "my body my choice" was left behind many decades ago.

    I may take you up on that.
    I am fluent enough with CAD and have been using it for years.

    Thank you very much for writing that out.

    Sorry to hear you struggling with this Vanguard.
    It takes years and years to build up a shop and a constant input of money.

    At this point I don't expect I will get much back out from equipment...

    Thanks- all good input.

    Re- subbing the cut work out.
    I don’t have a local shop I work with and on this one I am already out of time.

    Gotcha- thanks.
    I used to do the custom kitchen cabinets/bookshelves thing and commercial cabinet build outs but that was decades ago.

    Hello all,

    Yeah- the impression I got was that suppliers don’t stock due to lack of demand not a business strategy on the part of Tec.
