Default Shop Sabre

New to CNC Routing,just about to pull the trigger on a Shop Sabre 23 machine as a hobby/lite business machine. Anyone have a thoughts or experience on this as an entry level machine,or with this company in general?? I am in Canada and not too choices other than a lot of off shore brands with no service etc.
Any thoughts much appreciated!!

I've heard good things about the company but have no direct, first hand info - just what I read.

Add your first name to your profile to clear the N/a in the side panel. Add your location to your profile, as well, so it shows in the side panel.

Welcome to the forum fellow Canadian.
Bruce I purchased a cnc router table from Avid CNC in Seattle,but can’t give you any real user review yet , as it’s not assembled.
It may be more work than you’d like ,as it has to be built , but I’m not too concerned about that aspect of it .
I like the fact that the Avid Pro has expandability in the future if you like , as maybe you’ll find your machine is too small in the future and you’d like a larger footprint .
The Avid Pro got good reviews from what I read , and is said to be pretty steady for a kit .
John is a member here and hasn’t mentioned any issues so far .

Ok ,I never insulate

Welcome, Bruce.

I can't help you with that machine, but you may want to look on sienci.com. This is another canadian-sourced machine. I have the Long Mill 30 x 30 and could not be happier with the machine and the guys in Waterloo who support it. The forum is an excellent source for your research.

I’m in the same boat. I’ll probably be making a deposit on one sometime next week. Everything I have seen about them has been encouraging, and I have the benefit of living 30 minutes from where they are made - saves a lot on shipping.
