    You forgot to mention the bendy Bamboo or HDPE never mind the rails. LOL

    Hi,

    I feel I need to step in here before this thread becomes something it shouldn’t be.

    Please feel free to discuss this machine, what you consider to be less than ideal in terms of how it has been designed (mechanical construction) but also what you consider could be improvements.

    Comments in the form of “overpriced crap” and “crap” are not acceptable and should not be supported, if you have any doubt of what is and isn’t acceptable when using these forums please take the time to familiarize yourself with the current Community & Forum Guidelines.

    The guys behind this project have clearly tried to bring a product to the table that fills a gap, as with most things there is always room for improvement. This machine is clearly capable, as demonstrated in the Kick-starter presentation, please keep in mind that the people behind this project/product can only strive to do the best they can and within their abilities.

    As such, both they and their product shouldn’t be ridiculed, their efforts should be supported and encouraged.

    Interesting that this so called P.O.S. got funded to the tune of over $400,000!

    Surely a golden opportunity for someone to come up with a 'proper' machine for half the price....

    On another note, the Taktia is a real clever design...

    I had to gooooogle it to find out what the Taktia was. Looks interesting a micro cnc router conversion to correct operator error. That take the skill away from the operator thinking that could be cheaper than building a full blown cnc machine. What's your opinion guys ? I would love to hear what you think.

    That is awsome work, but I can't help but think he has wasted his time other than making a fun project.

    I don't think anyone could build a much better machine for the price of a Nomad and still make a living out of it. Then you have to look after 300 newbs having "issues" with their machine, argh nightmare. I wouldn't be surprised if these guys went burst after a year or so as a wave of compaints started rolling in.
