I have an apartment (which might be an interesting market to go after) and have very limited space. Even the WoodWorker on its side is still very big.
I want to mount the Machinist on a cart (which I can roll out on my outside balcony to reduce noise and mess) and be able to work on metals (aluminum, maybe even titanium or mild steel), so rigidity is very important. Also speed control and noise reduction (via spindle requiring more weight) will be critical.
So I would like a Machinist in X-50 for rigidity and better stepper motor. It was suggested that I try the hybrid (buy Machinist and Woodwooder and combine), but that is still huge on once dimension (also 4’ foot all in).
Hope there are others interested in this…
