Very interesting method that could be very useful in a busy shop where one might be distracted, especially with hearing protection in use. There have been a number of times when I didn't notice it was time for a tool change and as is to be expected, the machine is very patient just waiting... ;)

'Just a caution, however...one shouldn't leave the machine running un-attended.

This I know. But I'm not hanging around in my shop for 3+ hours while it does a 3D carving. I'm probably going to install a Nest Cam too. I wouldn't leave the house with it running, and there are 2 smoke detectors in my shop and others in the basement... And I've seen the safety/horror videos posted here...

.. And I've seen the safety/horror videos posted here...

And in my capacity as a Consultant, I have seen the results of what happens when an insurance company finds out that the machine was left unattended when virtually every mfgr on the planet warns against it. If you have attended CAMaster's Basic Training you would have seen these.

Lets both hope that is not how we meet!

Never thought about insurance. I get the message. Iíll stick near my machine and remove the original post. I would not want to be an enabler here.

Yeah, Iíve seen that video. Excitement like that, you can do without!

Iíd figured that doing a 3-D carving was safe, because thereís so little contact with the ballnose bit. But I hadnít thought about the insurance aspect. Thereís alway stuff to do in the shop, so Iím just going to stay there in future. Smoke detectors, whatever. Itís just not worth not being there if the shit hits the fan.

Gary, you may want to put heat rise detectors in your shop. Many types of "smoke alarms" perform poorly or false report in a woodworking shop because of the effects of dust.

Maybe. But I do know mine work. Last year sometime, I was cutting a bolt down and some sparks hit some tissue paper that someone had used for packing materials... I used my shop extinguisher for the first time ever. No harm done, but they went off.

Iíve also had them go off when wood has burned in the table saw...
