    I have watched videos and even cut wood myself with my inexpensive router saw, but now I need a machine to cut the letters so that I can get better more precession cut. Now the 3040 machine that I have watched cut metal online seems to be capable of doing that, but I keep hearing that the machine that I thought would work for me wont can someone tell me a good machine I can get to do some light wood work about 10 letters a day for under 800.00 dollars.

    I can't find a good video of one cutting aluminium, they all sound like the cutter is bouncing around or the machine is vibrating terminally and none that I can find give an in-focus shot of the surface finish on the cuts.
    Can you link to the videos you're referring to?

    Best of luck I have repaired a couple and decided to build my own CNC as my 3d printers were of a stronger construction than the 3040, my 3d printer also cut hardwood better than the cheap 3040's when I clamped the 400w spindle onto it.

    Oh, go on then, you obviously need someone to tell you how fantastic a 3040 will be and can't hear anything else, so just buy one then come back in six months and tell us how it's going ;-)

    The reason everyone involved thinks they are great is that not one of them has ever operated a machine that's adequately engineered.
    It's the CAD/CAM generation which assumes that basic skills and knowledge aren't required innit?

    :D

    Buy one and come back next week when you can't get the motors to move because the stupid stop button is locked down inside the damn case ;)

    Seriously though, for cutting letters out of wood only, I would stump up some extra $$$ and look for an 80W laser.
