In our small stone shop, our first real purchase was a bridge saw. When we installed it, we simply could not conceptualize a CNC. At that point in our shop history, we could not finance a ham sandwich. Not only could we not finance a CNC machine, sadly enough, we could not even see it down the road. That all changed in a span of only a few years.
