    I think we’re all different here. I’m using my cnc for precisely the one off items at the moment. I can certainly see how repeatability is one of its fortes, but I’m utilising it’s super accuracy and ability to cut precision exactly where I want it. Something that is beyond me and a blunt chisel !

    Maybe when I find that winning item, I’ll cut 100 of them

    Everything I've made so far has been one-off but the potential is there to make many copies of that winning item as you say. The trick is knowing what that winning item actually is. Anyone want to buy a USB-powered wooden pendulum clock that's as accurate as a quartz watch?
