"Carbon Cub FX turns the familiar 'builder assist' convention upside down," says Jim Richmond, founder and CEO of CubCrafters.
"Instead of assisting your assembly of parts from a kit, CubCrafters'
technicians facilitate your fabrication of the parts themselves."
Using the company's facilities and equipment, CubCrafters
