  • CNC Router

    Hi guys.

    I am seriously thinking about getting a CNC router and would like some input.
    The wife wants me to make new doors for the kitchen cabinets and there are a lot of doors to make. So I figure she can have new doors and I can get a new toy.

    So do I buy one or build one. I see quite a few plans on the net and they don't look that difficult to make but I am not a big fan of using MDF which is what I see on most plans. I want something that has a 24" X 48" cutting area some of the doors are 36" tall.

    Servos or steppers?
    Which software?

    Any other thoughts throw them in too.

      Maybe after I finish with it I'll send it to you because I have no idea where to put it. I guess her car is going to get kicked out of the garage. LOL

        Well since yours is already out the door--- what's fair is fair right? After all it is her project. I'm sure you can live with the cabinet doors the way they are.

          You hit that nail on the head Mike. I can live without cabinet doors if I have to. LOL

              I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

              New turning tools

              I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
              Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

              One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

              I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

              Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

              If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
