I want one, but at the $1800 price tag, I think I'll hold off for a while. It looks really cool though. Definately let us know if you get one.

Ive been drooling over this machine since it was first introduced a couple years ago.
Craftsman is a liscensed reseller.

The only downsides Ive heard is that its very loud (uses flex shaft drive) & the software offered by sears/craftsman is crippled. Carvewright, the actual manufacturers are offering a more robust software solution & working on a probe attachment.

Whether it can efficiently carve baits is still unseen, as its intended use is one-sided carving, however I'm a custom woodworker by day & would love to try the thing out on alot of different projects.
