Thanks MEBCWD for your post.
Although I mostly do woodworking as a hobby I do make a few bucks here and there. I recently retired and have more time to spend in my shop. I think a cnc would expand my capabilities as woodworker for hobby and making money. Although making money with it is not a priority. My shop is a decent size so room isn't too much of an issue. I have 220 power if needed but Im not leaning that way. I would like to make what ever the cnc will let me once I get a handle on it. ( plaques,signs,inlays etc,,,) As for materials it would be mostly wood but wouldn't mind trying other material like plastic and soft metals. As I said in my original post I am new to cnc routing and figured I should ask those of you who know about cnc machines so I can hopefully get it right when I do buy one. Right now Im looking at the X-Carve and the Shepeoko brands although its not set in stone on those. MEBCWD and 4D I appreciate your input. MEBCWD I liked your quote at the end of your post. Maybe that will be my first cnc plaque project..lol
