I just found this forum and thought it would be extremely useful, as for years I have made stuff by hand, but have seen more and more stuff done on a cnc router and thought I'd like to try it.

I had a look round and fancied buying a complete kit that I could just assemble but so far the suppliers of said kit I found have been slow to respond to say the least.

So in the mean time if anyone can answer a few questions I have that would be great.

I'm not sure what programs the routers run off, but I have turbocad 15 pro and wondered if that would run it.

Some I have found have linear ball shafts and screws and some come with stepped motors and wondered what was best?

Lastly for now, I had thought if I could get one with a bed that took a 2'x4' sheet of wood that would save on me cutting it down, so if anyone can recommend something in the UK that would be helpful.

Right now off to look through all the posts and see what info I can gather.
