i am new to this forum so please be patient with me... i have been cutting acrylic for a few years with a laser engraver/cutter epilogue to be exact and i want to move on and purhcase my own for the convenience of having it in my own home rather than outsourcing. I would love to buy a laser but i dont have the ventilation required for a laser cutter engraver so a router would be a better option for me.
can anyone give me some advice on what to look for when purchasing a CNC router.
i have just started looking into buying one and i spoke to someone about this one in china.... here is the link CNC Router Laser Cutting Machine CNC Engraving Machine-XYZ Technologies Limited
the cost of the machine shipped is $3000 USD which is reasonable i would think since im paying $100 per hour outsourcing but i am looking for a good deal as my budget is tight.... also want to know if anybody has had any experience with this machine or this company... any referrals?
I would be cutting 2mm thick acrylic and possibly some engraving but nothing more. It would be nice if i can cut aluminum as well....
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
