im a furniture restorer who makes things using a scroll saw aswell as small bits of carpentry and rabbit hutches ect and looking at adding a cnc router to use for fret work and making decorative items out of plywood / mdf / osb / laminated pine and maybe some plastic so i can make something on the router while working on furniture or other items

ive been looking at a few routers mostly entry level and seen some really cheap ones on ebay (under 500) but also seen the step craft ones just wondering if anyone has any experience on these or anything in a similar price bracket (somewhere between 500-1250 range including software ) i like the idea of the step craft one because you can add a 3d printer to the same machine and also you can get an adapter that connects to a vacuum cleaner to minimize dust

as said above this will be used for wood and partial boards and from time to time i may use it for something like a pvc any advice would be hugely appreciated
