I've done a couple of test carves now and I think I'm ready to try the project of the month next. This machine is a lot of fun and easy to operate. I do have one concern and I'm hoping to hear this is normal: After operating about a 1/2 hour the flex shaft gets pretty warm, I can only hold it for about 3 seconds.

Thanks, halftone.

Your problem is probably not having lubed your flex shaft. CW recommends chain lube with molly. If not lubed correctly the shaft will over heat and melt the outer core of the shaft. Instructions can be found on the main CW site in the support tab / maintenance
