At the next CNC Build Club, on Thursday 10/24/2013 at 7:00pm, we are going to have a demo of the, soon to be released, Shapeoko 2 CNC router. The ShapeOko was designed by local inventor, and PS1 friend, Edward Ford. The original version was extremely popular. The new version adds many new features.

- Easier to expand
- Open front and rear for feeding stock through
- Dual motor Y axis is now standard
- More ridged
- Belts lay flat and are easier to install
