The CNC Shark HD3 includes the NEW Virtual Zero software. This new and improved software ''maps'' the surface of your table or workpiece and uses the map as a dynamic reference point. This eliminates problems caused by warped or bowed workpieces and small inconsistencies in the table. It also allows you to carve and machine stock that is intentionally convex to begin with. A new electronics package expands the capabilities of the CNC Shark and allows attachments like a pendant control system.The CNC Shark HD3 also features a new gantry reinforced with plate aluminum and a sturdy interlocking table that is much heavier than prior models for more accuracy and less flex. It has anti-backlash, wear-compensated leadscrews on all axes and is built to handle larger routers such as the Porter Cable 890 series, Bosch 1617 series or large water-cooled spindles. To accommodate the greater torque levels, it features adjustable bearings to give more stability during heavy cutting. Perfect for carving and machining a large variety of projects made from wood, soft metals or plastics. Simply supply a PC computer with USB 2.0 port and any of the routers listed below, connect the USB cable to the controller box and load the software.Includes VCarve 8 Desktop, Vector Art 3D Sampler Pack and CNC Shark control software with Virtual Zero technology.Fully compatible with the following routers (sold separately): Bosch 1617 and 1618 Porter Cable 890 Series Porter Cable 690 Series (6902VS must be manually started) DeWalt 610, 616, 618FREE CNC Project Plans from Woodworker's Journal: Butler's Tray Weather Station Cribbage Board Workshop Jig Modern Table Outlet Cover Luggage Tags Chinese Checkerboard Puzzle TrayVisit the CNC Shark Forum CNCSharkTalk.com, a website presented by Rockler where CNC Shark users can chat together, share files, watch how-to videos, ask questions, learn from each other and even show off CNC Shark projects.
Some of our most dedicated CNC users are luthiers-guitar, mandolin and violin makers-or woodworkers with limited shop space who don't need or even want a full-sized bed on their CNC machines. That's why we've brought in the CNC Shark SlimLine, featuring all of the digital precision of our other machines, but with a 18'' x 48'' bed that is tailored for small shops and smaller scale work like luthiery. Create graceful carvings, corbels and signs. Make your own arch-top guitars, customized electric guitar bodies complete with cut-outs for pickups and electronics, as well as precisely arched tops and plates for mandolins and violins. You can even integrate ornate carvings into your electric guitars. The creative potential of the SlimLine is virtually limitless.

The CNC Shark Touch Probe attaches to the router in any CNC Shark Routing System to trace objects down to 0.001" detail allowing the user to import image data for replicating objects, shapes and patterns. Simply program the Shark to operate at the same detail level as the Touch Probe scan to reproduce the object later. Works well for replicating basic shapes for carvings or reproducing damaged areas on antiques or other irreplaceable items. Requires Cut 3D Software or similar software to be used with the CNC Shark models. Made in the USA. NOTE: To avoid accidents or injury, always be sure to unplug the router prior to attaching the Touch Probe. Touch Probe is compatible with the following machines: CNC Shark Routing System CNC Shark Pro Plus Routing System CNC Shark HD 2.0 Routing System The probe does not work with the 54111 CNC PiranhaIntroducing CNCSharkTalk.com, a new website presented by Rockler where CNC Shark users can chat together, watch how-to videos, ask questions, learn from each other and even show off their CNC Shark projects.
These heavy-duty, state-of-the-craft cutters produce perfect tenons with 60° tapered shoulders for the sturdiest-possible log furniture construction. The funnel shaped, self-centering design ensures flawlessly shaped tenons, and dual precision-ground blades cut twice as fast as single blade models and stay sharp longer. Plus, as part of the cutters' exclusive "IN-SIGHT" visual measurement system, slots along the shaft combine with radial grooves at 1/2" intervals to let you to see your progress and measure tenon length while you cut. Body is CNC machined from aircraft aluminum for maximum strength and minimum weight. Available in three sizes (1", 1-1/2", and 2") corresponding to the diameter tenon that each will cut.
