I watched the video. It's an interesting concept. I saw all of the material stops, and initially thought they could all be individually programmed and set for all sorts of different lengths. Upon closer viewing of the video it looks like all of the stops key into a single long rail that slides side to side, the reason for all of the stops is so it doesn't take all day for the machine to lock-in the length you programmed. Also, for well over $2000?....... That aside, it does look like a sweet piece of engineering, and looks quite sturdy and well-made. I guess if anything it makes me appreciate my Ultrafence that much more now, it's a manual version for less than 1/4 the cost!  ::) Thanks for posting this Eric, I saw it a week ago and didn't think to post it here. I'll see if I can find the link to the video  :)
