Greetings All,
Been wood working for some time and now looking at purchasing a CNC to branch out. Been looking closely at the CNC Shark HD extended. Seems like a pretty good package that comes with vCarve Pro and a laser attachment for $6K. Wanted to see what the consensus was here.

I had a HD4 for 3 months and had nothing but problems with it. I took it back to Rockler and bought a Axiom. Best thing I ever did. Money is about the same, but you have to buy the Vectric software.
There is no comparison to the two machines. The Axiom is built like a tank. No flexing router head and zero slop it any of the X, Y and Z axis.

The Shark is not too rigid. Too much plastic. If you’re going to spend that kind of money look at Axiom.

Have you looked at digital woodcarver? I’ve had mine for 6months and it has paid for itself double.
Prices are MUCH more reasonable than either the shark or axiom. I have the larger 24” x 40” model but they also have a small one. They are located in Indiana

Have your say...
