Default Hello from Kentucky

Iím new on here and I thought Iíd introduce myself. My name is Mike Fuson, Iíve been building custom kitchen cabinets for almost 20 years full time. I had never really considered the possibility of a cnc router because I thought they were all three phase powered. I recently learned different and have been doing a ton of research. Iíve pretty much decided that when and if I get one it will be a panther 5x8 with the ATC. I am very ignorant on the cnc world at this point but am learning a lot. Iím hoping to get one maybe around the end of summer. I built my business on buying equipment as I got the funds so this is a big investment for me. I sent in an online quote request Friday but havenít heard back yet. I look forward to learning all I can on here from you guys until that time comes. Thanks for letting me be a part of the forum.

Mike, welcome from another "newbie" to this stuff!

I also didn't get a timely response to my quote request from the web form, but I messaged a fellow who's in the sales area of this forum last night to hopefully "kick things up a notch". :)

Mike,
If you ever get into north east Tn. Your welcome to stop by and see my machine and setup. I am about 20 minutes away from the Bristol race track.
My main use of the router is cutting cabinet parts. The quality of cut and fit of parts is so nice.
