Buying a CNC Router: Frequently Asked Questions

TedsWoodworking Plans and Projects

If you need to find a CNC router for an affordable price, buying it as used woodworking machinery is an excellent option. However, as with buying any type of pre-owned equipment, care must be taken to assess the condition of the equipment and the reputation of the seller. Before they buy pre-owned CNC routers, woodworkers often ask the following questions concerning the condition of the equipment and the reputation of the seller.
How does used equipment compare to reconditioned equipment?
Most used equipment is serviced and tested before it is resold, but it may not have worn components replaced. Reconditioned equipment has worn components replaced. It is also cleaned thoroughly on the interior, and may have exterior blemishes corrected.
What is the standard discount for pre-owned CNC equipment?
The discount for pre-owned equipment is based on several factors, including:

The age and condition of the equipment
The original price of the equipment
The construction of the equipment

In most cases, equipment is discounted at least twenty-five percent off the original price.
Should used equipment have a warranty?
It is never a bad idea to buy used woodworking machinery that has a warranty. However, the condition of the equipment offers the most long-term investment protection. Most important of all is to buy a CNC router that has been reconditioned. If the equipment also has a warranty, it should be considered a bonus.
Should the equipment be inspected and tested before purchase?
Equipment should receive an inspection and a test run before purchase. Someone who has experience in assessing woodworking equipment should perform the inspection. During the test, the buyer should observe the equipment’s movements to ensure they are fluid, and listen for unusual noises that could indicate gear problems.
Is it safe to buy from auctions?
Buying from auctions is not as safe as buying from an equipment company. A company commonly offers pre-sale and post-sale technical support. It also offers information about how secondhand equipment was used by the previous owner, and allows the customer to inspect and test the equipment. Buying from a company makes it is easier to know what type of equipment you are buying.
What defines a professional seller of woodworking machinery?
Knowing the difference between a professional seller and an amateur one can be difficult, but the former typically has attributes that the latter lacks, such as:

A business location that includes a reconditioning facility
An extensive set of professional references
A successful business history of several years
A business website that features a large equipment inventory

The goal of most amateur sellers is to “flip” machinery and make money, whereas professional sellers strive to build a customer base.
Conclusion
A CNC router creates various types of woodwork, from table legs to stair risers. When a company needs to purchase computer-controlled equipment at a discount, buying it from a used woodworking machinery seller is the best option.
