Salt Lake City DIYer

I just received my XR and looking forward to assembly. I will be cutting mostly thin gauge sheet metal, but who knows where things will develop. I’m mostly a DIYer and have a job to pay the bills.

I have a 30x 20 shop and its pushing maximum density at this point as I have a lot of wood/metal/machine equipment. I tend to be a hoarder (so I have been told), but I’m fine with that.

Welcome to the forum!

I think you have lots of company of ‘hoarders’ here! The old adage it true, tool acquisition will always exceed the available space. (And never be enough!) :rofl:

Old hoarders never die…they just get pushed into a corner and covered with other old items…


I’m like you in the hoarding area. It’s gotten bad enough that I’m seeing it myself. I know as soon as I throw it out I’m going to find that place that I kept it for all those years. My hobbyist history is similar in the woodworking equipment evolving to more metal working. I have an XR ordered and I am in the process of carving out the space to assemble and use this monster size machine. It seems no matter what size your shop it’s always falls a little short of our needs/wants. I’m looking forward to receiving my XR and putting it together and learning to use it. Until then, and after I’m sure, I will keep reading about everyone’s adventures in building and using these marvelous machines.

Welcome to the band of misfits! :beers: :rofl:

Had to build a shed for the stuff displaced by the Crossfire Pro… the wife gets to continue to park in the garage.

Hopefully the ‘shed’ is, at least, 20x30 and has its own 200Amp service! Oh, and insulated too. With heat pump, of course.

I made my first cut last weekend with my Pro. Everything; assembly, software install, post processor, machine function went perfectly. No issues.
