Default New to Forum

I am new to this forum having shown interest in obtaining a suitable CNC Router for use as a hobby. My past experience is based on woodturning and small box making.
Can anyone suggest a suitable quality CNC router suitable for carving and model making. I live in Perth Western Australia.

Carvewright has a great CNC machine for a really good value. Mine is an upgraded "A" series machine that I've had for over three years. CW offers the new "C" machine with various upgrades starting at a very reasonable price. Mine is used for income in my shop as a speciality tool to complement my jobs. Many use it for home use. I'd suggest you go to Carvewright.com or Google Carvewright for more info. You may also join their forum and contact Lynnford for some special of the month pricing and sales information. Our local sales rep is [email protected] and Floyd would be happy to fill you in. Please PM me if you'd like more or specific info. The Carvewright machine is a quality tool that's dependable if you follow the instructions and watch the available videos. Remember this is a computer controlled machine with it's Designer software and must be kept clean with an accessory dust collector as a must.

Welcome Gaza,

I am the guy Bradley pointed you to. I do know there are a few CarveWright owners in your neck of the woods but just to let you know you will need to make special shipping arrangements for getting one down there. They do not ship outside of the USA.

Hi Gary,

I just remembered that Carba-Tec have a small CNC machine in their Sydney showroom. You might check out Carba-Tec in Perth.
