I am a retired newbie located in the St. Louis, MO. area who has fell in love with cnc routers. (I saw a Shark operating in the local Rockler store). I'm a hobby person with no interest in starting a business at this point.
My budget will allow around $4K for a machine and software. After extensive reading and searching I've ruled out the Shark. My problem is I'm unable to locate another machine that is within my budget that has a good support system/forum and I do not want to buy a kit to assemble myself.
I'm now wondering if I should consider a used system and would appreciate any thoughts you'all may have. Does anyone know of companies or individuals in the St. Louis area that may be able to help me?
Thanking you in advance for any help.
