    Default CNC Router this summer

    This is the router I built this summer for doing woodworking and mild aluminum. It was a fun project but built it with my MIG now looking for new projects with the new Diversion I got last week..

    Here is the first sign I made for a practice run, and the clear was still wet so it was cloudy but cleared up good after a day..I alway forget to take picture of projects that I have done for other boats , I usually do custom instrument panels and tackle box cabinets for yachts..

    If that's the machine that guy wants to trade you a used Dynasty for, plus cash forget it. You can pick them up used for under $2000 once in awhile. Looks like you got some work in that CNC unit.

    If you are set on buying one in the future, look into demo machines or factory refurbs. Larry Burross (weldersales) will treat you right. He's the king of demo/new old stock machines.

    Pretty nice.

    7A749,
    the router cnc I am keeping , I have a shoptask cnc that I used to make a lot of the parts for . And the Dynasty is the full unit ,with cooler and all but I have never been able to find them very cheap if at all.I will check out the links you gave me as well thanks.
    Here are more pictures of the router that show it better ,It has a cutting area of 48" x 24", and so far has done a good job for me..
    The control is made from 320 gecko servo drives, smooth stepper control card , 72 volt transformer power supply , and I use Mach 3 control software with Bob Cad V23 software..

    Ahhh..

    Thanks for the clarification.

    What do you have in the CNC? The Dynasty for the base model is going around around $1800-2500 used in VG condition on a very rough average. Remember, the base machine sells new for just a little more ($2800-3300 depending on where you get it) The list price is 30% above what the distributor pays for it generally speaking. When it comes to a machine like that, I would buy it new, or at the very least, from someone who will offer a guarantee of some kind with it.

    Repairs on them can get pricey in a hurry.

    You can get a good used cooler for under $300 on the net all day long. You have the skills, I'm sure to fabricate a cart for it.

    Just something to think about. I want one myself, but it ain't happening right now.
