I just spun up a business making kids furniture and while I love hand making everything, I’m looking to scale up and automate some of the process.
Figured out I can get my materials costs way down purchasing Baltic birch and running it through cnc to get my primary cuts and punches done. I’d probably save about half my work time through automating this.
Question is, I know the Maslow system can be finicky, but I’m comfortable troubleshooting and finding/making solutions. However, has anyone experienced issues with downtime or other factors (besides slow running, I am excited about the 40% speed bump of the m2)?
Also, any specific issues with hardwoods or birch in particular?
Just hoping to make this purchase with open eyes and looking for cons I might not be thinking of using this to scale up production. Wouldn’t be my forever machine for this, of course, but would be a good start I think.
