    I think there are quite a lot of possible future plans, involving sending the Spindle or Router, out and over the front of the machine. The Z axis gives it a natural propensity to project out and over the front. Just needs a few extra inches on the Ys to get more out of the position. :rolleyes:

    Saves making a hole in the table! :banghead:

    A great area for jigs and such. :thumbsup:

    How about a 6" or 9" platform on a couple of threaded rods and a small Nema for lift and drop? :rolleyes:

    How about a detachable rig for additional utilization, which can literally plug into the ends of the V slot? :thumbsup: :rolleyes:

    5th Axis uses this area quite often so I've seen.

    Anyone seen anything else interesting in this area? :rolleyes:

    Could be very well worth bearing in mind on a New Build! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Very useful idea Gray :thumbsup:

    It could add the possibility, with the machine mounted on a suitable table, of making dovetail and similar joints with ease.

    Absolutely my Friend. :thumbsup:

    And adding a hole in the floor could make it limitless! :D

    (Great if you live on the top floor of a block of flats!) :ROFL:
