HI Normo,
Welcome to the show.

Being from California, I actually didn't know what "arty farty stuff" meant.

With your interest in CNC routers, and knowledge of other CNC stuff, it would be a small jump for you to become interested in 3-D routing of wood, plastic, and metal, to make all things, which is getting more popular all the time.

I look forward to your contributions to the forum.
Mark

thank you for the replys.. very helpfull. there is a wood working show in melbourne next month where i can see the shark pro in action and hopefully other cnc machines, i like to be able to see and touch , rather than listen to salesmen hype, advice from people who own and use these machines is by far better, so with a little research , hopefully i will be able to get whats right for me.... cheers normo
