It's been 6 months in the making and we now have our brand new CR Onsrud router!  We decided to purchase a new machine to add more aluminum cutting capacity, have the ability to handle larger sheet sizes (up to 8ft wide), and have increased after-hours cutting capacity.  This one is a behemoth with a  8' x 20' table.  It weighs in around 30,000 lbs and is extremely rigid.  The new machine is installed and fully operational.

 Here is the table loaded with four 4'x10' sheets of 3/16" aluminum.

 We also decided to put the machine through it's paces and cut some 1" thick aluminum right off the start.  The tolerance and cut quality is unbelievable!
