    to run it
    theres mach 3 which is cheap http://www.machsupport.com/ then theres Linux cnc which is free http://www.linuxcnc.org/

    for woodwork get a look at artcam express http://www.artcam.com/express/ its about 100 quid or so and easy to learn .
    then theres the vectric stuff http://www.vectric.com/
    anything the latter two have to offer will be limited drawing wise so its handy to have a proper cad program also then import finished drawings to the above
