    I just found the price (it ships in September 2018): $2980.

    That would pay for quite a lot of commercial CNC work, so it's a non-starter.

    Did you make any headway with the Maslow, Scott?

    I ended up cancelling my order - they seem a good little startup, but they made the mistake of delaying delivery long enough for my buyer's remorse to become stronger than my curiosity and enthusiasm.

    But I want to see cool photos of what Jerry does.

    I've got the Maslow, due to time constraints haven't got past the calibration of the final product. First project is to make templates for a chair, then on to building a small catamaran dinghy directly from CNC files. The calibration is fairly involved, and I've had some problems with the chains skipping or wrapping. Others have figured out solutions so I think I can get it working well soon. I will report back.

    Me? No, I don't think so. I'm just thinking of how to facilitate the process of getting the SibLim 7 from dreamboat to reality. Not for me, I'm too long in the tooth and already have a boat (much as I'd love to have a SibLim). For others.

    Are you thinking of building one yourself?

    Last year, we were talking about this DIY CNC gadget, and it looked like a useful tool, looking for a job to do. Now I'm close to having a job for it to do, in the shape of the SibLim 7m.

    Food for thought ...

    Of course, what immediately flashed through my mind was " would it be possible to create a kit of parts for SibLim? Or, more feasibly, a SibLing at about 20ft?"

    This looks very interesting!  A great way to create a flat pack boat kit, and of course cheaper than paying for 'professional' CNC cutting.
