I just bought a Shapeoko XXL but it was twice the price. The only one I was looking at with that price range was a BobsCNC. I think I will like the Shapeoko. I got it Friday and I am in the process of building Samscraft table from YouTube. Hope this helps.I am a total newbie and I'm looking for recommendations for a CNC machine in the 1-1500 price range... That is if there is anything worth buying in that price range. I make signs, toys, and art out of luan, ply, poplar, etc. Any advice is appreciated!
