    New to CNC

    I am new here and very curious as to what kind of cnc machine I need. What I want to do is cut balsa wood and plywood parts for RC Planes. I need/want a least 900 mm deep and 600 mm wide. I am a little afraid of the Chinese machines I have found on ebay. However, I need to keep my budget at or about $3000. If getting a Chinese machine is all I can do, then I'm willing to change out the controllers.

    I can really use your suggestions on what I need and can get.

    If all you're going to do is cut balsa and plywood parts...look into the Shapeoko 3 machines. Carbide 3D
