I am in the same position right now, trying to decide on the right CNC router for me. I am less concerned with the $ and more with the features and precision. I will be doing work from signs, precision inlays (VCArved male/female), to basic panel work. Tormach has a new offering in their 24R but it is brand new to the market so no experienced users yet to share their experience. I do own a Tormach CNC Mill for >10 years now and they are great from a support perspective. I am considering the Legacy Maverick 3×5, Laguna IQ ATC, Camaster Panther, (and maybe should be looking at others??). I am concerned with the precision of the rack and pinion accuracy vs. ball screws. I talked to the Lagacy sales guy and he said they can only promise +/- .005”. Wow!. The ball screws are .001 or better. Other things I care about is a size of minimum 2’x3’, a PC based controller, 4 axis expand ability, a Z of minimum of 6” and preferably more, and the ability to trigger tool changes during the program with an electronic tool setter. I would really appreciate any feedback on this from anyone with direct experience.
