    As far as I know no one has taken on the task of building these for profit. There as been interest here in purchasing by a few folks, but no one as jumped up yet to start producing them. I have not yet built one due to time restraints, which I'm sure is the issue with most people, so I not sure of the build as far as time and material costs. Then you all so have shipping costs, being made out of mdf may have weight issues there.

    I have a newbie question. When cutting the UCB project, is there any risk in cutting 1/2 MDF without using a carrier (or waste) Board? My understanding is that Carvewright will sense the material thickness and not damage the belt but would like to understand any risks before hit the start button and find myself in the midst of unintended consequences.

    It is not possible for the bit to damage the rubber belts. The Y/Z truck only moves laterally over the open space between the belts. Just make sure the project stays under the rollers (7 inch rule).

    Dan, thank you for the UCB. I've had mine for years but hadn't really used it. Today I had a board with a twist that I just could not get to work. Threw it into the UCB and worked great. Definitely will start using it from now on.

    Glad to see you are using it! For me, it is standard procedure. I very rarely carve down on the belts.
