Default Cnc routers

Hi
I am interested in purchasing a cnc router system, but am pretty confused about what is out there. Does anyone know if a comprehensive comparison of these machines exists and if so where can I find it. There things are quite expensive, but I'm not afraid to spend the money if I know what I am getting. Hope someone can help.

Hi Ken,

Welcome to the forum.

You asked a pretty broad question that is not easily answered. You would need to narrow down the basic size and features you would like before anyone could give you a helpful answer.

There are many routers available in a variety of sizes and costs. I built mine from plans but there is no need to build your own unless you enjoy the challenge.

I would be glad to assist you if you like. Just shoot me a question and I will do my best to answer

Welcome Ken. As Bill [bgrigs] said there are so many makes and models on the market, you will need to define your requirements before the forum could help you.

There is no comprehensive comparison of all in the market that I am aware of.
