I built a Balsa Wood Shaping machine and wrote a Windows based software interface to make balsa parts for my business. It's worked out so well, I'm about to increase its capability from a 5x5x12 block size to a 5x5x18 or 24 block size. I'm also increasing the motor power from a NEMA 17 sized motor to a NEMA 23 sized motor and the rail sized from 8mm to 12mm to handle harder woods.

Just wondering if there is enough interest for a crowd funding campaign to put the larger/heavier duty model into production.

Any interest out there?
