    FWIW, I've done 2 Centroid retrofits and used one for daily job shop type work. I found it to be far more useful and easy than any of the conventional controls (Brother, Siemens, Haas, Fadal, etc). ...

    Can you rotate that 4th in any other orientation and still access the parts? The overhang on the other pallet makes me nervous!

    I'd say it's more appropriate for agriculture instead of 4 wheeling.

    But then the Dana 18 had an agricultural spline on it anyway!

    Hmm, the 0.01mm snuck past me. That's 4 tenths!

    The thinnest feeler stock I'm aware of is 0.001"

    Just handling a 40" piece of Al would probably move it more than 0.01mm over 40".
