Although its attractive price might suggest an entry level machine, the CNC Piranha is every bit as capable as its CNC Shark cousins and it even includes a convenient touch-screen interface! Its compact 12'' x 18'' table makes it perfect for smaller-scale projects like carvings, plaques, ornamental boxes and precision parts machined from wood, soft metals, or plastics, all at a fraction of the price of a full-sized CNC. With its 3D carving capability, including a 3D models library, you can carve expensive corbels, cut intricate inlays and engravings. The CNC Piranha has such incredible accuracy that you can engrave custom circuit boards with it. In addition, the entire machine can easily fit on one end of your bench. Design your project with the included VCarve Desktop 8.0 Design software on a PC computer with USB 2.0 port (computer not included). Then save the program directly to a USB flash drive, plug it into the Pendant, select your file, and hit the run button.

Our beading bits come in a range of sizes to suit many applications. Use the smaller bits to make beaded trim moldings, and the larger bits for bull-nosed edges on thicker stock. A 1/4" beaded molding mitered around doors and drawer fronts adds a subtle and strikingly attractive effect. In bullnosing applications, a beading bit gives you a true half-round profile, without the flat in the middle that a round over bit would leave. It also machines the edge in one pass rather than two. All of these bits feature sturdy 1/2" shanks for extremely smooth, stable routing.
