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.

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
Rigidity is a key requirement to ensure accuracy when machining parts on your CNC machine, and this stand more than meets that requirement. Built from heavy, thick-walled square tubing, and held together with sturdy bolts, it resists vibration and deflection like no other. The included heavy-duty casters make it easy to roll across your shop, while adjustable leveling feet ensure stability and a level surface. It even includes a shelf to keep your controller safe and easily accessible.
