By now, most readers will have heard of Sierra’s latest machine, the new Machine Tool Shop 870.
Sierra’s machine is the culmination of years of engineering efforts, including a 3D printer that makes the machine’s internal components from scratch, and the creation of a machine that can easily and safely wash and reuse tools.
Sierra is no stranger to making machines that have some degree of aesthetic appeal, and it seems like they’re trying to take that same approach with their new machine.
The 870 machine is essentially a new design that makes a ton of sense, and I can’t imagine anyone would think otherwise.
But there’s a problem: The design has a few major flaws.
First, the tool is made of a hard plastic, which can’t be cleaned easily, making it susceptible to damage during the wash.
Second, the machine itself is fairly bulky, and can be hard to handle.
Third, the 870 comes in three colors: black, red, and green.
Each color has a different design, and a different amount of space available for tooling and tools.
The only thing that’s consistent about each color is the shape of the machine, which is what makes it easy to handle even if you’re not a machine user.
If I had to guess, the green design might be Sierra’s first attempt at a more appealing, yet functional, design.
While the new design might not be the most aesthetically appealing machine out there, it’s definitely not the worst.
The problem with the 890 is that it’s not exactly a machine you want to take home with you.
Sierra claims the 880 can be cleaned in under a minute, but even after just a few minutes, it can take up to five hours for the machine to fully clean itself.
If you’re trying for a little extra cleanliness, the Machine Tool Wash Machine is a solid alternative, but I’d rather have the convenience of a cheap machine that cleans itself in under an hour, or at least a more efficient one that can take advantage of a 3d printer to do the rest.
Sierra has done a great job of designing the machine and making it easier to use, and while I like the idea of a cheaper machine with better design, it does take a little getting used to, especially since the 830 isn’t even a true machine.
If the 860 or 870 are your first machine, I’d recommend checking out the other machines that Sierra has on offer.
They’re also available at the Sierra website, and there’s also a great selection of other machines at the other hardware store, Amazon.com.
