I guess the Shapeoko is the forgotten one! While some of this translates to other machines, all but one is related to the Nomad.

I’m afraid you’ve caught me.

I’ve been adding the videos, but I haven’t found time to watch or transcribe the videos (I have a pathological dislike for videos on computers) — if someone would post the numbers from each, I’d be glad to.
