Das Bot

Since last April, Ian and I have been working on starting up a cnc millshop.

In July we secured a great space in San Francisco. Then, last week, the centerpiece of our enterprise arrived in an enormous wooden crate just tipping the scales at about 1/2 ton.

The past week has been spent assembling the beast. The archetypical christmas morning toy assembly extrapolated to its absurd extreme.

We took our time and savored the process and did it right. Overall everything was very straightforward. Not always easy but for every problem which arose a solution was at hand.

Today it is ready to be hooked up by an electrician. When that happens we'll be in business.
