It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one of these machines - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Along with the CNC router I discovered the wonderful material called Precision Board and the glues, primers and other companion products they offer. Since then we have gone through many tons of the material using it in most signs and projects we tackle. This journal will chronicle our many adventures both past, present and future. I'll talk from the perspective of someone who pushes these products to the creative limit on a daily basis. I'll be adding to the stories two or three times each week. -dan

Production begins

With the prototype finished and approved it is time to get the NEB's Fun World bowling centre project in full production. Both the MultiCam plasma cutter and CNC router have been running steady of late. The router is churning out the number plates and panels for the posts. As quick as they come off of the machine the crew begins the painting.

The plasma cutter is cutting all sorts of pieces and brackets. These too are welded up as fast as they come off of the machine. Once they have cooled the corners and welds are ground smooth in readiness for the larger assembly process to start tomorrow. The shop is busy and filling up fast!
