    This is pretty neat. From a product management perspective, I love to see upgrades rolling out to something I bought. You make a big investment in a machine, it's good to know that it has a future of possible new capabilities. I can't at this moment think of a project I need it for, but give me a day or two...

    Also will be interested in seeing some best practice type videos for milling such deep materials... feed rates, good bits, experiences with varying materials, etc. Removing alot of material will always take a lot of time, but with a long, flexing bit it will be further slowed (ref the above mentioned carbonite bust...) :)

    Overall, very cool upgrade and I'm excited to see what the community does with it.

    Little known fact: Carbonite©®™ is actually a proprietary Imperial formulation of machinable foam. Designed for maximized cutting speeds with minimal tool flex, it was originally intended as insulation on TIE fighters, but has since shown promise in preserving fresh produce and meat products and "meat" "products", as demonstrated by Hutt "Meat" "Product" Transport Lines.

    Same here RoosterTX and thank you for the good idea on the "best practice type videos" these will go a long way on showing the community the capabilities of these mod.
