    Question What machine cutting area suits you best?

    What cutting area suits your needs and space best.?

    This can be either a Router or Mill type machine. So here's a few questions.

    #1 Machine type, Mill or Router (no lathes)
    #2 Cutting area X, Y, Z
    #3 Ideal overall footprint size W,D,H (or space to fit into)
    #4 Floor standing or benchtop.
    #5 Material most likely to be cut.

    Thanks.

    That's a pretty open ended question given that everyone's needs are different.

    For my purposes:
    #1 Mill
    #2 about 40x14x18 inches
    #3 I have plenty of shop space, so a full enclosure for flood coolant. Footprint about 10x7x8 feet
    #4 Definitely floor standing
    #5 Mostly aluminum, some plastic, and stainless steel.
