    since this is going to my first, do you think i should start with the standard bundle and then upgrade to the 2X Cbeam? Or should i get the 2x large cbeam? as for the bundle, can you swap out parts such as linear rails? i am a woodworker by trait. my plan is to use the build for making festoon MFT table and make aluminum jigs. so the festool mft is 3x6 in size. Once i get the bundle, what else do i need? i know router, mount. do i need a controller. like the apex? or should i wait for apex. sorry for the confusion. my mind is trying to make sense of all this. thanks for you time. please help if you time.

    Personally, I want the Apex. I have four DQ542MA drivers already which I currently control with an arduino board. The arduinos can be found for about $10 as a temporary control board if you want to get an Apex later.
