    T30 is the side with the 4 hour lines down the street that stops processing trucks at the drop of some pigeon poop just so the trucks do not overrun the under sized yard and under staffed facility.

    At least T18 makes you set an appointment so they do not get a major line or yard over run. Was plenty of scattered non-container freight on T18 last time I was there.

    Ive seen thier website but thats about it. My only concern, with any tabletop machine, is durability. Since table top units are obviously built small, I wonder how well the small bearing, ball screws, and ways hold up over time. Depending on type of machine, one can often spend about 25% to 50% more and get a small industial/commercial model.

    Waterjets can cut just about anything known to man. Uses high pressure water with some type of abrasive mixed into the water.

    Problem I have with the industrial style is that most I have seen want 3 phase to run the pump motors. That is not available to me on my property.

    What I should look at doing is a 4ft by 8ft industrial router table with an interchangeable head for router/water/3d Print. Kinda marginal on the 3D printer part though. Because of cost per volume may just look for a higher quality desk sized printer.

    Yep T18 took me 3 attempts to get a container out of there after waiting 2 weeks for an RFID tag for the truck.

    They want me to pick up 2 containers from there 3 days ago. Containers still show this morning as on the ship not at a dock location. Going to wait till morning to piss everybody off and tell them "I am not the monkey for your circus ", may come out more as "no can do" have other commitments. Boss that matters has been prepped for this message.
