Rockler has introduced the CNC Shark Black Diamond, a limited-edition CNC routing system that features ground-breaking Virtual Zero software that, together with the included touch plate, 'maps' the surface of your table or workpiece, using the map as a dynamic reference point. This eliminates problems such as uneven relief cutting that are caused by warped boards or inconsistencies in the table, which often occur when clamping pressure is applied. It also opens up untold creative potential when working with three-dimensional workpieces.
The CNC Shark Black Diamond is built to handle large routers with up to 2-1/4 HP, which increases the cutting production and capability of the machine. To accommodate the greater torque levels, it features adjustable bearings to give more stability during heavy cutting. With a work table measuring 710 x 915mm, it is ideally suited for carvings and machining operations on a large variety of signs, doors and other projects made from wood, soft metals or plastics. Its aluminium and high-density polyethylene construction is designed to support frequent and prolonged use.
The CNC Shark Black Diamond Package includes a free $50 (Â£31.30) Rockler Gift Card and Accessory Kit: CNC touch plate and five-piece bit set.
Price: $3,999.99 (£2,504) (please note that all products from USA to UK are subject to shipping & taxes)
