CNC Routers
The Buyer's guide

Buying a CNC Router Welcome to the buyers guide sections of our website.

There's no doubt that CNC routers are amazing tools. They offer the ability to have a design brought to life in a matter of minutes. Skilled craftsmen can also produce a product using an array of tools. However, they can not compete with the precision, speed, and affordability of these machines.

Machines of the past used punch tape to acquire the geometry needed. CNC machines today, use a complex system of computers and controllers combined with controller software to guide the router. Using this method to control the machine,you have the ability to produce a near perfect product.

Of course, you have already considered this, which is why you are looking to buy one. However if you are like many, as you search for information you only find hundreds of models and manufacturers. Which probably got you asking, "Which one is the right one for me?"
