Great CNC Machine Package
I was impressed with the value for a machine that will meet my needs well. My only concern is the lack of a detailed manual for the CNC or laser. They would greatly benefit from posting tutorial videos on YouTube. These two recommendations for it's manufacturer Next Wave Automation is desperately needed. I've called their customer service department a couple times and cannot praise Next Wave Automation's excellent technical support. Absolutely excellent!! I'm looking forward to a 4th axis suitable for this smaller platform in the near future. I purchased the touch plate also and have found it an essential accessory for zeroing the Z axis so to avoid cut through to the platform. I purchased the CNC, laser, touchplate, and a Dewalt palm router from my local Birmingham Woodcraft store. The CNC came with palm router mounts for a Dewalt and another mount for a Bosch router.
