    The XYZ Carve is a bit of stretch if you want to do aluminium as the OP mentioned. A 400W spindle isn't up to the job. My XYZ carve has the Makita router as a spindle and has a number of strengthening mods done to it and cutting aluminium is a slow, tedious process.
    I tend to use my 6040 with t water-cooled spindle to do what little aluminium I cut.

    What would you call "a little hard" for your budget?

    Are you a Chinese dealer?

    I have the XXL version of the Shapeoko 3 https://shop.carbide3d.com/collectio...nt=42721938758

    And love it! 800x800 cut area, it has MUCH beefier rails and belts than the X-carve, It cuts aluminium very well for a Sub-$2k hobby router. By that I mean it cuts just fine, but isn't rigid enough to take big depth cuts like an industrial machine. Having said that it is FAR more rigid then the x-carve or the XYZ carve from 3dtek.

    I've got one in Armidale, NSW. I will be looking to sell it in a few months if you're interested, I'm moving to a Tormach-style CNC mill when I have the money
