Default CAMaster CNC router tables

Anyone familiar with them ?
At some point I wanted to purchase a Pro 4x4 from cncrouterparts, and the cost would be $5,800 Canadian for the machine , and that’s not including any electronics.

I just googled cnc router tables on kijjii and came up with this one .

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-power-tool/e...ationFlag=true

His asking price is almost the same as a new one in US funds . I should make an offer and see what he says . Start at 9k

Looks fairly heavy duty imo , and I think I’ve heard good things about this company.
Just needs a spindle and a vfd.

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

That would be a top of the line hobby machine. Many consider them to be the top machines in their price range. Very loyal following.
They're so popular that people (imo) overpay for used ones.

Thank you Gerry, good to know .

I just made him an offer . He’s lives quite a long distance from me, 7 hour drive , so I won’t be to concerned if he doesn’t entertain my offer .
The router is the only weakness I see. Will there be any unexpected issues upgrading to a spindle and vfd ? I see packages on eBay all the time . Liquid cooled spindle and a Hitachi vfd is what I’d like, as I want to minimize noise .
Looks like 20mm linear bearings possibly. Hopefully their well taken care of.
Looks as though it comes with Vcarve pro . That’s a bonus

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Well he claims he installed an hour meter on it and figures it has over 300 hours of use .
I made a low offer and he countered with $11,000.
I really didn’t want to spend that much on a used machine . He said he’s upgrading to a larger machine when I asked him why he’s selling it .
I’m thinking of offering 10k max ,but would feel more comfortable at 9500

Rick,

If you get it I've got an air cooled spindle with about 10 minutes on it along with the VFD brand new in the box. About $300 -- you pay the shipping. Cost $450 from Auto Tech last year. It is 220.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Thanks for the offer John. I was hoping to go water cooled ,as I thought it would minimize noise, and yes I realize the cutters make noise .
But I’ll keep you in mind.

I have a feeling I’m not going to buy this one advertised ,as he wants a pretty good dollar for used condition imo.
Gerry mentioned CAMaster has a pretty good following,so maybe the guy will get a good dollar

Well I just read the specs and the CAMaster used 25mm linear racks on all axis . Heavy duty!
But there’s no mention of stepper motor size . Was hoping there NEMA 34 and not 23, but seeing as there not mentioning it ,I’m thinking NEMA 23

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Rick, the CAMaster Stinger II comes with NEMA 34 motors. If I had not built our Saturn machine I probably would have sprung for a CAMaster, fwiw.

Thanks David . He just replied and claims it was upgraded to 34’s .
He’s come down to $10,000 . I think it’s worth it ,as he’s claiming it’s around double by the time you get it from the USA with shipping ,taxes and exchange . I don’t even have to question that .
I know the cncrouterparts pro will be closer to 10k for the machine alone .
I have no idea how I’m going to get it in the garage at this point , but this may be a missed opportunity if I don’t jump on it .
I’m really tempted to take Friday off and pick it up . I’m concerned about damaging the gantry when it’s bouncing down the road in my trailer . Not sure what would be involved to remove it .
I’m assuming the linear bearings would be easily wrecked if I lose the ball bearings when it’s apart .

Terrible resolution,but he sent this document.
