Lack of information.
Pricing is pretty straight forward and definitely more affordable than Xcarve.
Ease of assembly is a no brainer as well. The MPCNC is definitely much more DIY. Not a bad thing. Sometimes building the tool is more rewarding than using it once it is done. In this case I have a moderate preference for a machine with a modest build time.
Performance & support?? Not enough information to make a call. So far the activity level on the forum here is not what I had hoped for. Also, I have not been able to determine if the DW660 that MPCNC uses will meet my needs.
Thank you for your reply.
