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.
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
