Sometimes when you are making something really small you need a 1200 lb. machine to do it! I recently got this Gorton Pantograph and have not had much time to use it but I needed to make a truss rod cover out of Wenge and it seemed like the perfect opportunity. This machine was primarily made as an engraving machine but is robust enough to handle light milling and can definitely handle many of the wood and plastic jobs that I need to do. It can reproduce anywhere between a 1:1 and 16:1 ratio. I am really happy with it so far.
