Hello All, This is my first post on the forum and I'm a total Noob; so here goes. I've been looking at building my first CNC machine and am vexed between the Shapeoko 2 and the OX route. The "Brick S@#t House" side of me says go OX all the way since it just looks so much beefier, and I always over-engineer all of my projects. Anyway, has anyone on here built both machines that can lend me some advise as to which road to travel? I'm talking to Chris Laidlaw to cut me all of the machined parts which seems to take the OX even up one more step. Any advice or contrast you guys could add would be very much appreciated. I want this mostly as a hobby CNC but would like to cut both wood, aluminum and acrylic if that helps in the decision. Thanks in advance for your help!
