Welcome to the ShopBot project wiki, a resource for all kinds of information on using your ShopBot CNC tool and making things with it. Anyone can read any of the information that's here, but wikis really work best when everyone adds to them. You'll need to create an account to edit or add to the wiki but it's free and easy to do by clicking the "log in/create account" button in the upper right corner. If you're new to working with wikis you can find some [[Help:Contents|Help here]] and try things out in the [[Test Sandbox]]. Also check the [[ShopBot_Wiki:Community_Portal|Community Portal]] occasionally for notices and tips on working with the wiki.
