Does anyone have any experience with these devices ? I am looking for one to boost my productivity with airbrushing, etc. Handcutting stencils is a very long, arduous task with more complex designs .

I built a little desktop CNC machine from a kit a couple years ago. I haven't had the time to do much with it, but I did a couple test drawings/runs with it and it's pretty impressive. It's a shapeoko version 1. They are now on revision 3.

I guess it depends on what you are looking to 'cut' as to whether that would even be viable. It can make great drawings with pen/sharpie. Cuts with a small dremel tool.

Lots of good info at their forums too.

I would be cutting vinyl stencils, mayyybe some light cardboard for stiffer handheld stencils, etc. I have looked at a few and most are for scrapbooking, etc. Long term, I'm looking for something that will provide a lot of versatility. the larger 24" versions are along the lines that I am looking for, but I see a lot of stuff that is pretty dodgy in terms of support, parts, etc. Lots of junk from China .
