CNC Cutting

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there have access to a CNC machine for cutting wooden signs?

Freehand adds rustic charm. How many do you need? I know a guy that works pretty cheap.

We need 36 done this year and about the same next year. Really want to use a CNC machine, preferably a Shopbot since I have owned one in the past and have the software to run it.

That certainly looks like it would do the job. The cutter I used before came from this company: www.shopbottools.com, but I suppose any cutter would work.

LG... looked up that ShopBot... pretty impressive for what it can accomplish vs. a CNC in a metal shop.. and hardly no-space take up and movable... amazed at the price though $7,000 +. not counting software ,tooling & shipping ...

All together I need about 80 signs done. 40 this year and 40 next year. Way too much work to be done by hand. Last time I did this project (for Groveton), I bought a used Shopbot, did the project over a couple of years and then sold the Shopbot for a few hundred dollars less than I paid for it. Only downside was space it took up since I was not using it all the time. Looks like I will have to do that again. Thanks for all of your ideas and feedback.
