    Add LED spinle light, helps allot, Air blast nozzle will also help allot on lots of materials.
    And first off, dont go cheapo on cutting bits, it will only give you bad cuts and they break fast.

    The name of the router should be "Routy Roddy Piper" he was a great Canadian. Make a routed wood PC case! I'm full of ideas... oh how about routing the frame for a key board and routing wooden keys, you could take the guts and switches from an actual keyboard. Make a Linus Tech Tips lattice for the garden maybe. Oh you could also make a room divider Chinese/Japanese/Korean screen type thing with multiple hinged panels for your employee lounge project. Routed lighting shades or sconces are neat too, you can include your logo or other avatars/artwork... done tight they will project the image in a shadow on the wall.

    Gantry mills wont accurately do .001 so yall know. And thats a nice and Very expensive cnc router, and that spring wont stop backlash. maybe slightly reduce it. Anti backlash systems are a bit more complicated.

    You can only switch the milling head when the machine is off. Il earned it the hard way, had an accident once where the milling head flung throw the factory hall, it was 18 years in the past since then i never have done it again, plz shut the machine off before you switch the milling head!!!

    "The Dust Bowl" (History reference)
    "Dusty the Wood Slayer" (...you know what that is)
    "iWood" (don't tell Apple)
    "iCarpenter" (seriously, don't)
    "iDice" (well, that could go on forever...)
    "WOOD-E" (cute WALL-E reference and god-awful innuendo in one!)
    "Chiseled" (sexy pun!)
    "The Great Inciser" (play on incise "to cut" and the tooth cuz that thing eats through everything)
    "The 3-Tree Printer" (sounds like 3-D)
    "Whittle Big Tool" (3 layer pun?: "whittle"-cutesy way to pronounce "little" that doubles as woodcutting verb and models trend of calling big guys "tiny," and name play off of Little Big Town)
    "Ent Slayer" (I hate myself)
    "Masterhack" (like Masterchef since you're like home-cooks making something awesome, and "hack" cuz you got a tool to avoid becoming master craftsmen)
    "Spruce Almighty" (cuz now a normal guy can play god and make anything and who doesn't love that movie?)
    "Timber!" (now that's the least politically correct one...)
    "Tree Shark" (nope, topped it)
    "Pac-Man: CNC Edition" (let's face it, that's basically a live-action update of an old game)
    "Geppetto" (Disney reference)
    "The Guild-entry Cheat-code" (found the industry work-around to becoming master craftsmen)
    "Picasso" (since you'll be making art/but maybe not always what people consider good art at the time?/ and as a reminder not to cut off any body parts doing it...like ears)
    "Hometree" (cuz you got a fortune in tech invested into it -movie plot and production-wise - Avatar reference)
    "10K Etch-A-Sketch" (I guess the extra $9999.01 is for the permanence?)
    "Red Peril" (Man from U.N.C.L.E. reference, plus the cost reminds me of RED camera costs, and also Illya's super-dangerous, like your new toy...and it just sounds cool)
    "Master-bit" (have fun with that innuendo guys - originally I thought it could sound like "mega-byte" but, yeah, no...)
    "Phallic Rage" (okay, this is deteriorating, but seriously, picturing that as a laser-etched sign makes me laugh... and it does kinda fit)
    OMG I have to stop... weirdest 20 minutes I've ever spent on the internet (and my first ever youtube post, yay)- but seriously, that challenge was irresistible.

    Considering that Linus bought a bunch of $50,000 cinema cameras to make web videos (not a good fit to say the least), yes I _did_ think that he spent the kind of money that only the _noveau riche_ would spend on a Cisco-type network router, even though we all use network switches now.
