I want to specify that my issue is not with Amazon.com. The service I have received from them throughout this ordeal has been fantastic.
The greyscale images that are supplied on a DVD include a stunning portrait of Chairman Mao and several of Buddha. For balance they've included an eagle and a Cross. You'll need your own pictures for sure. But engraving pictures wasn't what I wanted to do anyway.
The stated foot print is a little deceptive because the table is pretty much the same as the foot print, but during operation extends the front and back space requirements substantially. I had to set it sideways on my work bench. I didn't record the exact distance but I think it would add and additional 6-8 inches front and back.
I was looking for a router/engraver to do pretty small detail work - typically 3" in diameter and .1-.2 inches deep. I liked that this one didn't require a PC to operate. While I'm a persistent person and I worked with this machine for a couple of weeks, it doesn't do well with hardwoods like maple or poplar, and does pretty well with Corian, but if I kept the depth each pass at the maximum recommended it would start going too far on the x axis. I decided to try a shallower cut, slower feed and see if that would help. Doing this it was going to take four passes and 8 hours, so I set it in motion and left it to work for a few hours. It did fine on the first pass, but then it lost registration very slightly on the second pass. So no way to win was what I decided and eventually I returned it.
I am now working out understanding the Click n Carve machine available on Amazon that is doing a much better job, but has a much smaller capacity. It also is so quiet, sealed up and small that I actually can use it in my office. I didn't think I'd like having to supply a PC, but it means you have much better control of the router including spindle speed.
I'll write a review for that item later after I understand it better. I'm learning that with any of these machines there is an understated learning curve.
I think the Oliver Machinery offering may be good for some uses like routing pine or engraving pictures in plastic, but that wasn't ever my intended use. If you buy one, keep all the packaging until you are sure it's what you want.
The manufacturer explained that the program needs to be run as an administrator, this allowed me to get it running. I was cutting moments later. The controls are pretty intuitive and simple. I have since cut mdf, plywood and corian using the files provided.
I have also been able to take images and have the system cut them. This is really gratifying. The Oliver Machinery 1013 works perfectly, I am working on mastering my photo processing software so I can get it to cut with better resolution.
Cutting Corian with this is awesome. The detail is fantastic. I hope I can get it to cut lithophanes soon, at this point tho, it is clear that the machine is quality and competently constructed. I am just learning how to give it what it needs.
I feel that the documentation could offer a lot more detail and support but the system is simple enough that the fact that the documentation could be better is not an impediment, just a minor inconvenience.
Now that I have cut some objects I am much much happier with the product and my initial frustration is gone.
