Default New Blood from Illinois.....

After lurking about cnc on SMC...I really liked what I had read about CAMaster and decided to look into them.....I was considering a cnc from woodcraft and was looking for info on them upon further reading it really seemed like I would rather quickly be unhappy with the capabilities and wanting to upgrade....So instead I will continue to put my pennies aside and pull the pin on a Stinger II 44 with upgrades...planning on that to happen next year this time....figure Iíll come to the 2 days of classes and pick up my machine in one trip.....So,for the year Iíll be reading ad learning all I can here and look forward to being an Owner....

Smile Welcome

You have definitely come to the right place and have travelled down the same decision paths as many of us. Buy your last machine first is very good advice. If you want to save some dollars keep an eye out for previously owned machine for sale, you can get some great deals. Cheers.

You will be assimilated!

Welcome to the forum and clan Yellow. Such an outstanding group of folks here; all more than willing to share their experience/advice. The waiting is the hardest part of becoming a Camaster owner. I hope the time passes quickly. In the mean time...have some fun here.
