The lure of that kind of stuff is that they so incredibly shorten the
distance between "imagine" and "use".
I don't know how many times I've said - and heard other people say -
"I wish I had a tool that could/would ..." With that stuff, if you can
imagine it, draw it with your CAD package, and figure out a way to
keep your workpiece from squirming around while it's beeing shaped,
you can have your new tool less than a day later.
The price range puts 'em out of my reach, too; but as the prices have
come down, my interest has gone up (and up and up). It's not so much
the coolness of the machines, it's the coolness of the machines that
can be made with the machines... :-)
