The door is one challenge, but so it moving it from the loading dock to the room through the school. Simply put, the classrooms we work out of are in about as inconvenient as possible a position to receive something that large.

We’re also running out of space for larger, floor standing tools. Our build space also functions as a classroom during the school day, so the power tools largely have to hug the walls of the room.

We do have a 110VAC router, albeit underrated for cutting aluminum. We still get some mileage out of it on polycarbonate, and have parallel efforts to acquire a Omio X8 ongoing. However, due to the nature of this particular funding, we’re investigating purchasing something from an American vendor that honors school’s tax free status. The Omio will happen at a different time with different funding.
