Rip-it Automates Table Saw Fence Setup
Tool Blog
Chris   June 01, 2018   1   1  
We all know the typical rip-fence setup routine for a table saw. First, you unlock the fence, then you measure and position it, then you tap it a few times in both directions, then you lock it in place when you think you have it right—but you don't really have it right. The fence has inevitably moved while you were locking it into position. Now you get to do the whole process over again. Or, you could use a new product launched on Kickstarter called Rip-it, that offers a more automated solution.

Ooznest WorkBee CNC

I have been researching CNC Router Kits lately, trying to see if it would be worth it for me to automate some of the work I have been doing. One thing that bothers me with what I have been seeing is the way the drive mechanisms are exposed to dust and debris. My other concern is with the rigidity of CNC routers made using extruded aluminum. However, the new C-Beam based WorkBee from Ooznest seems to address both of my concerns while still remaining modular.

The mechanics behind a CNC router, a laser cutter, and a 3D Printer are mostly the same, so why not make a machine that can do all three with interchangeable heads.? That is the idea behind the CNC Piranha Fx, a new project that is seeking funding on Kickstarter from the makers of the CNC Shark.

With most CNC routers you have to bring the material to the machine, but the new Handibot CNC Router has you bring the CNC router to your material. Is this going to be the gateway to getting CNC routers on the jobsite?
