Do we have any kind of ETA on the bottom covers? Not rushing. Just wondered....

We are going to put a 600 lb sheet of aluminum on the table today, we have to pull out the laser to get the sheet on the table. When we get the machine running, we plan on cutting a sample bottom out of 1/8 inch acrylic. HOPEFULLY, photos by the end of the day...

Carver Pro PT-1800
