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.

Woodworkers who prefer to use their routers mounted in a table will love the Leigh RTJ400. Unlike traditional dovetail jigs, the RTJ400 slides along the top of your router table, encouraging a comfortable upright posture, and eliminating the need to balance your router on the top of a narrow jig. It provides fast, accurate routing of through dovetails, half-blind dovetails and box joints. Like other Leigh jigs, the template for the RTJ400 is precision CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum. Perfect joint fit is guaranteed and repeatable with the patented Leigh elliptical guide bushing. NOTE:Operation requires a 1-3/8'' Porter-Cable style insert ring to fit the Leigh eBush to your router table or router plate. Lets you create 5 sizes of through dovetails, 4 sizes of half-pitch through dovetails, 3 sizes of single pass half-blind dovetails, and 4 sizes of box joints (finger joints)Also capable of routing angled dovetails and end-on-end dovetails (splices), both straight and angledMakes precise joinery easy-just center the board on the template and guide the jig across the router table to rout the jointsOne template makes all three types of joineryIncludes clearly illustrated, step-by-step user guide and a DVD with helpful how-to videos
