    Cnc router options/opinions?

    I have a Inventables X-Carve which I have upgraded to 750 x 1000 mm. If I was doing it all again I would go for a Workbee from Ooznest in Essex simply because of local availability and support.

    I have an X-Carve from Inventables, if I was in the market now I would get one from Ooznest in Essex. Very good back up and support according to those that have bought from them.

    Cartridge for Sip 01924 dust collector

    Brilliant Nick so glad it was the right one, I find that I need to clean the filter normally every time I change the bag, keeps it going for a while, I turn it upside down and place a bag over the hole and give it a good shake up.

    Cartridge for Sip 01924 dust collector

    I have the same dust collector as you and fitted a metabo fine filter cartridge, I believe that Record do one that is almost the same as well. Mine fits with just a single strip of door sealer, if you do get it you will really notice the difference. Ian

    Shapeoko 3

I started using F-Engrave which is free and finally last year bought Vcarve desktop which is a massive improvement...

    The Hardwood Offcut Shop - Brentwood

    Thinking of buying a OX CNC kit

    Hi I looked at these and decided to go for the X Carve because of support and size.

I also design mainly in Inkscape and...
