Default Review of CNCs

My knowledge of CNC systems is limited so I canít speak to the accuracy of this review but thought it might be of interest to the forum.

If youíve never used a CNC machine before it may be confusing and daunting to try and understand the differences between the machines offered. In this episode, we take a look at some of the factors to consider when looking for a CNC machine

Yes, there is a video attached to the article. Unfortunately, my ability to copy those links from my iPad is seriously lacking, as in non existent. Hopefully the following will get you there:

David:

I googled “CNC designed for woodworkers” and found several links to this one and other reviews.

Apology for the inconvenience.

Yes sir, I knew I could search for those items but figured you intended a link.

I didn't watch it, but it looks more like an Axiom ad than a review.

There are 10 videos in that series and all of them are talking about using an Axiom CNC so it is not a comparison of hobby level machines but the basics of their operation with very strong references to how good their machines are. All of them start with a disclaimer that it "Includes Paid Promotion". The videos are all done at the Axiom factory.


They are nice entry model machines but this is not a comparison of different manufacturers machine, just a promotion for Axiom CNC.

Jon, no problem, they may still be helpful.

They would be good for someone to watch if they are comparing CNC machines because they do point out some very important things to look at as far as structure when considering a new machine.
