I want the machine and the scanner probe attachment, sounds good for restoration and duplication of vintage woodworking. I could make a buffet in the same style with same carved details as the rest of a dining room set. Or repair broken details of otherwise very nice pieces. maybe we could share the scanned profiles once we start developing a custom library.

Howdy neighbor. I happen to live in Lutz myself and have had my CarveWright for a few months now and expect DHL to arrive with the 3D scanner for it tomorrow. I'm here to tell you that it's a great machine although my projects run more to the smaller items, like wooden model ship parts, etc. As for SEARS, you might check with "W.C" at the Sears store hardware, University Mall on Fowler/Tampa. He might be able to give you some insider information as to the fastest way to get one from Sears. I don't know this for a fact, but he's been more than a little helpful to me over the past years, so it can't hurt.

TAZ, I live in the Eastlake area of Palm Harbor so am just down the road from you. I have had my CW since last spring and am very pleased with it. I travel a lot so give me PM and we can set up a time you can see my machine. I have ordered the scanner but am currently on the road so have not had a chance to even open the box.

I noticed the other day that BobHill had received his scanner. Can you, or anyone else, offer any insight as to what it will add to the CW? I am curious, but was waiting for some input before buying it. I'm anxious to read some postings from you guys that have already received their scanners. I've heard that you will be limited to a thickness of about 1" .

Since all current carving is limited to 1", being able to scan just to 1" seems reasonable. Remember that you can put in wood a thickness of 5" max, but you can only carve into that by 1". I believe the max height under the scanner and still have clearance is 2 " but still only 1" deep can be scanned. I've not been able to use it yet due to time restraints, but this coming week you can bet time will be set aside for plenty of experimenting, especially on small detail items, which is what I primarily do. Unless you do just what's available now for carving, Bill, you can't go wrong from what I see to have the scanner. I'm sure glad I got it.

Taz, I am all the way in Dallas Texas, but if you happened to be visiting here, I'd be glad to demo the machine for you. Not sure if this is what you were looking for.
