  • Just ordered a Stinger 1

    Hi all,

    I just ordered and put my deposit down on a Stinger 1 w/ a 2x4 table. The sales guy said around 4-6 weeks lead time. I can't wait to put it to work. I started a small business making 3D signs out of my garage about 2 months ago. I'm working my Nextwave Shark HD510 from 6am to midnight 7 days a week. It's been a good enough machine, but I needed to step up to a professional production machine with more features. The Shark was a good machine to learn on though, and I will continue to run it. In a perfect world I'd like to have 3-4 Stingers running simultaneously.

          Nice. Congrats on the Stinger. I feel that you will find it much more robust than the Shark. If you're staying busy doing all that 3D work you really need a few machines running at one time to be somewhat profitable if you're doing it as a FT business.
