Ok I am looking at buying the GR-408 from Haas and I am looking for input. For the sake of conversation I am starting from ground Zero. I have a building being built and thats all so far there is nothing to go in it. To start a small shop concentrating on cutting Plastics, 18 gage steal, little aluminum, wood/composits, but alot of micro engraving and little 3D more 2D, Programs used will be MasterCAM, and ArtCAM. What kind of tools am I looking at buying, and where from, im in the Vancouver area of BC Canada, any one got ideas?
For an economical router type machine - check out www.axyz.com. Their routers would be well suited for your plastics machining, engraving, wood etc. Good routers.
