    Judging by the picture and the recent additions to the Part Store, this seems like the sensible guess.

    On a different forum I saw a post recently where someone had lasered "medium rare" onto the surface of a steak.

    At a minimum you could probably have it cut a pizza into 7 slices...

    I don't know why but made me think.. if it could cut 7 and a half slices is it really just 8 slices?

    Depends on your definition of a slice. Do ALL slices have to be the exact same size to be considered "a slice"? Or is a slice a literal slice, regardless of size? If you slice a slice in half, do you have two slices or two half-slices? If you keep cutting in half, how long until it's no longer a slice? Can you have a 1/64 slice?

    If you cut it into 7 and 1/2 slices, eat one slice and cut one of the remaining slices in half, have you still got the same number of slices? How long can you continue this process before you run out of pizza?

    That sounds asymptotic. I think you tend toward infinite pizza?

    Well like most, 2020 had different plans for me. I have to admit that being disconnected since March was a much needed break. But just moved into a new shop. Hoping to have my workbee out of storage real soon. I've missed it!

    Yeah, it's certainly been a year!

    Well that's awesome! Lots of people are getting new shops at the minute, maybe the real estate market is right or something. Meanwhile I'm filling my last space with another machine! :D

    It's a pretty sweet machine with the mods. Should be fun!
