It's worth checking out their entire flickr stream to see the kinds of things they're doing. My urge to get a table-top laser-etcher that can cut wood is increasing.

How robust is the folded section? Can it survive a lot of use/abuse, or will it break down there pretty quickly?

My realistic urges for new tools are limited by space. I had made the bad mistake of bargaining away a section of the lower level where I have the two rooms of my shop. I could have had three, but then I would have filled them up before this anyway.

I'm hoping to build an XYZ computer controlled table once the shop is done, and hanging a laser off that should be possible (though pricey). On the other hand, those cuts look like they could be done with a 1/16" bit in a Dremel tool.

The hinge doesn't look terribly robust, so I think it's more of a novelty than an actual functioning part.
