I was looking at the machines at the LegacyCNCwoodworking site, and figured that if they can put a rotary indexer on a shopbot, you can probably put one on one of these relatively inexpensively. I build guitars and furniture pieces, so the indexing for table legs and such would be a requirement. I like the pricing and "solid" reputation these machines are enjoying...anyone combined one with an indexer?
The hybrid has 4 or 5 indexer users now. I will be adding mine later this year when my big machine is built.
Here are are some one the 4x4 hybrid machine.

That still photo from the last video just gave me an idea for the first addition to my currently incomplete 2006 model router.
I have some extra bright LEDs left over that I bought for another project. I think I'll affix them somehow near the cutter (maybe in the dust shield) to provide some light during cuts. They're 12v, so I could use a low voltage power source. Could even work a switch in somewhere so that it's not on all the time. But an "on with spindle" option would also be cool.
