Default CNC

Most DIYer's do NOT have access to CNC machines, so I must assume that your post gets this point. My point would be that "pin cushion" frames have been around for decades so as woodworkers we would have accepted the challenge of transferring this pattern to the baffle. Not rocket science! Not easy! See what I mean?

might be a good idea if Jordan could supply a Solidworks cad file for download, then DIYers cd then just get everything done cheaply on any 3 axis

The old fashioned way of inscribing the pattern with a sharp knife and the hand chiseling with a sharp wood carvers chisel is actually not that time consuming. By the time you program your cnc, clamp and fix the workpiece, calibrate the xyz toolbit, etc. You could be done using a chisel. Really, we should stop complaining about a non-round frame. Cnc is for multiple unit production, making two relief cuts is no big deal.

as phivates notes above, not all DIYers have access to this type of CNC

CNC = Carefully Nudged Chisel

yes, that's true, but once you have those programs saved and if you like the driver enough to use dozens of times, a pair of baffles can be machined in less time that it takes to resharpen your chisel

yeah understood; but useful for those with access to the internet and can locate a nearby workshop with a 3 axis

Anyone had any updates from Ted or Denise regarding the release of the Eikona? Was slated for January 3rd, but I've had nothing from them, nor is there any update on the website.

I have a pair from that group buy, as well as an earlier set purchased from CSS when they were still the Canadian vendor. The latter sound much better. Having gone through highly praised TBs and 103 clones, slagging the Jordan is a difficult concept to parse.

What 'slagging' are we referring to here?
