The 3 Options You Have in Obtaining Your Own CNC Router

Sphere: Related Content

Deciding on the purchase of CNC Router is not always the most attractive prospect. The upfront cost of a router can be a bit intimidating and cause a great deal of reluctance.

What I will do here is discuss the top 3 choices you will have in the acquisition of a CNC Router.

1. Buy Brand New

This is the most obvious prospect. There are some major benefits to purchasing a brand new CNC Router, the 1st of which is that you can rest easy knowing that your machine is brand new and most likely will not have any major mechanical difficulties for some time. The 2nd is that in 9 out of 10 cases you will receive some type of warranty from the company you purchase from; a benefit you will not receive from the other two options.

2. Buy Used

This is probably the most popular option of the 3. You can find plenty of resources online that sell used CNC Routers and I'm sure that you can receive an excellent bargain.

In my opinion, this option should only be resorted to if you absolutely cannot afford a new machine.


Because you have no idea what you are getting yourself into. Traditionally, you will not get any warranty with your CNC Router purchase or any assurance that the machine has not experienced major mechanical challenges in the past. However, if you can be sure that your source is reliable and trustworthy, then go for it! This option will save you about half the cost of a new CNC Router.

3. Build your own.


That's right, I said it. Build your own!

Now if you are anything like me, this is not a very inviting option. However, if you are the naturally crafty type this project may be a lot of fun and very rewarding. Again, you will easily find all of the necessary resources for this task online.

Well, there you have it! The top 3 options mixed in with a little bit of my opinion.
