One of the things we’re often talking about regarding ShopBot’s CNC tools is the ability to complete complex work in a fraction of the time—and without the need for additional manpower. With all that is going on right now, you might find yourself needing to do a bit more on your own, and we think that having a ShopBot tool can help you get the work done.
And that’s not just lip service. The people that work for ShopBot make use of tools in their own home workshops. The proof is in the pudding, so they say, right? Well here you go—this is a repository of videos and other posts from members of the ShopBot Team during this time of social distancing, self-quarantining, and stay-at-home orders.
Keep checking back in, we’ll be updating this page regularly, giving you a single location to access what we’re posting on YouTube, Facebook, and other corners of the web. Just because we're all trying to keep our distance, it doesn't mean that we can't still share what we're up to!

Camp ShopBot was set for relaunch this year, but Covid-19 has caused these meet-ups to be put on hold for now. In the meantime, join Bill Young for Virtual Editions of the camp via video. This one is about a couple of the tools we manufacture, and each segment was contributed by a different ShopBot Team member.
