    Hi Dave, welcome to the forum! You're in the right place if you want to find out about self-builds as there's plenty of build threads on here depending on what you want to build and what you want to machine of course!

    What you want to cut in terms of materials and size will really decide which way is best to go...

    hi neil.
    planning on working with mainly wood.
    so would need to be 1200 x 1200 min. and prob with a min 70mm z axis.
    would love a 2400 x 1200, but its mainly for personal things to get started.
    was looking at a second hand Gerber cnc router.
    but hope to get some direction from this site.
    or a self build. I have access to a steel worker ,250 ton press brake, 6mm guillotine and mig welders.

    but already have a few projects on the cards. so pointing more to a cheap second one.
