    The first one Golieth was a kickstarper campaign & the target launch price was $2850 if the actual launch price is as Robert suggests then there will be A LOT of people who supported the campaign expecting a 35% discount on launch price who will have paid quite a bit more 😆 😆

    The second one is a scam & the original Golieth people have been trying to get it shut down, they have been warning people about it.

    The 3rd one has been around for some time but not sure what the lattest on it is.

    Been looking in on the golieth one since it appeared as a kickstarter some time ago, you never actually see a video of a complete cut & I would suspect there will be other problems other than just swarf. Cutting forces at the tip of a router bit are quite high so accurate cuttting is one problem, it also seems to be very slow so not sure it would work to well on site for trades people. Finding a flat level 8 x 4 area on site to set up may be a problem & when have you ever seen a sheet of construction grade material that is flat 😆 😆

    Laser option is probably better suited to it as has been sugested or vinyl cutting, reg mark location could probably be easily added as it uses a lot of sensors 😆 😆
