      Google "intarsia pronunciation" and you will find a link where you can hear the correct way of saying it.

      I think it is latin as I never wondered about the pronunciation, but had it rather correct. Do not think I know latin, but I have a rather good understanding of how to say words in that language.

                    Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...
