A Few Words From Seth about this machine: "these are the culmination of everything I've learned in more than 20 years of building machines, from a comfortable clip cord position, purposeful geometry, ease of maintenance, useful tube vise, to good balance, and everything else in between. they have a wide operating range, and are capable of pushing the big stuff with ease, or backing off for finesse when executing the most detailed and intricate work. I couldn't be happier with how they've turned out."
