Hi,

1. What is the advantage to having the fixture for crossovers be half of the whole?

2. What sort of machine is used to make Quicksticks? Is there a web site somewhere that would provide detailed information?

Thanks!

for the crossover design question the answer is size and cost.

Half a crossover is shorter, small and easier to build, it may be twice the cost to have a full crossover jig made, and then its the size and additional shipping costs. :(

For the quicksticks are cut by laser that Fast tracks owns and used for making all wood products. 8)

You can buy your own for lots of money and then buy the software to program the thing, or just buy from here.

Regards the laser cutter - I have no interest in one other then general curiosity about technology - it seems like an amazing piece of equipment.
