    So I pre ordered the shapeoko 3. I will be building RC plane parts from wood and balsa. So I know shape 3 is small but upgrades for bigger are promised. But the more I look at the ox the more I relize the price will be better in long run. How sturdy is the ox. What accuracy are people seeing. And how do u think it compares to shape 3. Thanks

    They are both very similar machines in their built and work very much the same. The main difference is that the OX is built from scratch, and therefore can be customized, and the Shapeoko from a kit.

    I can't decide. The ox looks beefier and I can make it bigger. But shapeoko looks nice still. What's better on z acme or belt
