Any thoughts on this?
Can't imagine they will be up to speed with customer service right away.
Canít pay a guy to stand and cut cab parts on a saw for that.
I just checked and it said it was not available
This is bound to be the trend over the next decade. Every cabinet shop no matter how small will have a cnc to acurately cut case parts. The barrier to entry for true production in my opinion is finishing now. Flat line finishing systems are still huge and expensive.
I think it's great because now if you are a good Craftsman and a good engineer you can compete with the big boys on a lot of levels .
Best of luck in 2020 for everyone!
"Is it a toy"
Isn't everything by grizzly fall into that category?
For $18k dollars, I'm betting that is one of the most expensive cnc's you could get your hands on. The good machines don't cost $100k+ because they're screwing you over. They cost that for better engineering, better parts, longevity, and speed.
You get what you pay for. Pay now, pay later.
I checked and it said it was available. No reviews as of yet.
Seems to me that these Chinese cnc routers are totally flooding the market right now, basically the same machines re branded over and over again. I wonder just how crappy they are??? All of our other tech type stuff is made overseas. I havent bought a cnc yet, and while Id love to buy domestic, the price of these import machines are ridiculously low for what they seem to offer.
We have a Baileigh WR-48v, essentially the same machine.
Though we bought it quite awhile ago when it was about 11K with a vacuum pump
It has it limitations for sure. But it does exactly what we thought it would do. No tool change, or ability to measure tool length in the middle of a program. Two tools means two programs.
The newer model is the wr84v. Its about 18k without a vacuum pump.
We bought it based on an old shop having limited amperage. I wouldn't have been interested at the current asking price.
A good used machine is probably a better option within a similar price.
This type of machine could be a game changer except for one thing- it lacks a swappable toolholder.
I'm not impressed. Chinese junk. I'd go more with something like this, US built and the guy actually answers the phone, Grizzly support is the worst I've ever dealt with
