Looking through my DE magazine I see the a Roland SRP (subtractive rapid prototyper) starting at 8K. www.rolanddga.com/srp. I really want the homedepot wood cnc.

You can build your own for much less. I will be building one soon. there are many designs and kits out there. mine will be a composite of several.

I have a benchtop Taig CNC 4 axis in the garage.

Prepare to spend thousands, but it's better than spending tens of thousands on a 3d printer. Sometimes it's just better to find a good service bureau you trust, and outsource.

And DE is a great magazine. Tony rocks.

BTW, my Taig wants to grow up into one of these... http://www.industrialhobbies.com

Best,
