You can chose where it pierces and leads in from... I write programs for my stuff to have my buddy's table to cut it out

Yeah I have no doubt that it can be programmed to pierce the middle of the hole then work its way out, it's just that this company has the "good enough" mentality, which is killing me on the inside.

I can't believe they invested the money in a piece of equipment that should make product look and fit great but don't want to take the time to make it work properly-that's just laziness.

That's what i've been doing. I don't want to be associated with a company who gets by with "good enough".

Eh i'd say more negligence than laziness, but that's definitely part of it.

You're smart! A lot of those classes will offer to have you take the test to become certified as well. That sure doesn't hurt!
