First of all, let me second @DanoInTx. That’s some very impressive work. I’d venture to say that the first time you clamped a piece of scrap 4x4 in between centers and grabbed a roughing gouge, the results were not quite in that ball park. With CNC and 3D printing, there is a lag between what you envision and what is produced. If you are turning on a lathe, you can see and feel what is happening as the work is being done. With CNC especially you are working from a computer abstraction until the moment that the bit hits the wood/metal whatever you are cutting. When things don’t quite go right, there are always some that blame the tools. I can’t count the number of hobby wood wood shops I’ve seen that are full of Grizzly, Jet, Sawstop etc. tools and are producing junk. Equally, I’ve seen quite a few that are producing great work with a second hand table saw and a drill press from the neighbor’s junk pile.
With the advent of the internet and forums (fora?) like these, it is too easy to vent your frustration with the result that it looks like products are much worse than reality when what is really happening is that the user hasn’t quite gotten the hang of using the new tool correctly. I’d worry only if the complaints were coming from long time users. The rest of it is just beginner’s frustration with themselves being projected onto the tools they are using.
Sorry for the rant but I see this all to often on other forums that I belong to to just sit this one out.
