Default new to cnc

Hello all: I am a relatively experienced woodworker, am a journeyman and have worked in a custom millwork shop but have no experience with cnc. I see their potential and would like to enter the world of cnc routing but am not sure where to begin. I have watched the machines operate and understand how they work but have no idea what is a good entery level setup. My present interst is in doing inlays in furniture and the like but am sure it will expand. This info may have already been posted so if you can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Go to feeds and then CNC routing. There is lots of information there. I use a stinger but there are lots to choose from depending on how much you wish to spend, what size you are looking for and the type of program you want.
