What You Should Know Before Buying an Affordable CNC Router?
A CNC router is a CNC(Computer Numerical Controlled) carving machine which is used for routing 2D/3D shapes on wood, stone, foam, metal, acrylic, plastic, PVC, MDF, ACM and other materials. CNC router is widely used in industrial production, small business and small shop, home business and home shop, school education. CNC router is also called CNC router machine, CNC carving machine, CNC router table, CNC engraving machine, CNC cutter, CNC engraver, CNC carver, CNC carve machine, CNC routing machine, CNC cutting machine, CNC engrave machine.
A CNC router is mainly composed of Control system, Spindles, Servo motors or Stepper motors, AC inverter frequency drives, Linear guides, Ball screws and Workspace table. CNC router sizes mainly include 2' x 4', 4' x 4', 4' x 8' and 5' x 10'.
How does a CNC router work?
A CNC router machine needs at least 3 axis to complete the routing works, called X, Y and Z. The X-axis is horizontal, the Y axis vertical, and the Z-axis refers vertical to the other two axis. A computer “controller” reads G-code or machine language instructions and drives a tool. The CNC router spindle holds the tool and move along X, Y and Z axis, following the paths generated by the software. In a 3 axis CNC router, the tool is always vertical, and undercuts are not possible. In addition, some CNC router machines have an A, B and C axis representing a rotary axis around the main axis X, Y and Z, called 4th axis, these CNC router machines are mainly used for some cylinder carving and engraving works. A real 4 axis CNC router also have X, Y, Z axis which refer to the X-Y-Z-A, X-Y-Z-B, X-Y-Z-C, 4 axis are linked, and the four axis can work at the same time. 5 axis CNC router has two additional axis which can move along. These additional axis allow for shorter project time due to their capability of carving five edges of the material simultaneously. The position of the router is determined by a computer telling the motors mounted on each axis how much to move in each direction. Using this method of positioning, any location within the machines work area (envelope) can be defined and the router can be moved within that space. As the CNC router machine is driven by a computer telling it where to move, the operator uses a software program to draw the shapes they want to cut and create the path that the machine will follow. So, when you have some CNC router plans, what kind of CNC router machine should be chosen? which all depends on your work needs and budgets.

Most Helpful CNC Router Buyer's Reviews
- David Smith from United StatesPosted a review for STYLECNC® 5x10 CNC Router Machine with Linear Automatic Tool Changer on Dec 18, 2018
This is a solid, well-made CNC router machine. It's a whole lot better than the old craftsman CNC router table I had. That was a piece of junk in comparison. I purchased this CNC machine two months ago and I haven't seen anything close to the quality and features of this machine in this price range. It's very good value for the machine price.
- Pavel from Czech RepublicPosted a review for Stone CNC Machine Center for Cutting and Polishing on Dec 12, 2018
Just received this big stone CNC machine. Engineers from STLECNC helped me for training and installation, which is very helpful for the CNC machine.
I am glad to have this CNC machine and meet the lovely people from STYLECNC. Recommended.
- Ken from United StatesPosted a review for Affordable Linear ATC CNC Router with Auto Tool Changer on Dec 11, 2018
Today we cut the MDF and plywood with the CNC router machine. Both look to be very well made and are doing what we need so far. STYLECNC has never made us disappointed thus far, when we finish the first cabinets, we will come here to update.
- Kevin from RomaniaPosted a review for Economic Automatic Tool Changer CNC Router for sale on Dec 06, 2018
I really love this STM1325-3T CNC router machine, my work is to make all kinds of wood doors and cabinets. as far as I am concerned this CNC machine is suitable for my job. Thanks for the help of STYLECNC.
- Wilson from MalaysiaPosted a review for STYLECNC® 2030 CNC Router Machine for sale on Dec 04, 2018
I received the CNC machine last week and took about 2 hours to familiar with the operation. I was concerned about the table not being flat but it is very flat, no bumps or dips. I made a beautiful set of 7' cabinet doors as part of a Murphy bed (my first project).
I think this CNC router will last me many years. I definitely recommend it.
- Anonymous from United StatesPosted a review for Cheap CNC Router Machine with DSP Control System for sale on Nov 22, 2018
I bought this CNC router for building electric guitars and it's worked great. It looks strong and is probably going to last long enough to be handed down to my sons, it's a great value. I use the CNC machine at least once a week for shaping and trimming necks and bodies and the only time there is an error, it's my fault. I would definitely recommend it.
- Lucas from AustraliaPosted a review for Affordable 4x8 CNC Router for sale with Multi-spindles changing automatically on Nov 08, 2018
I recently ordered this cnc router and received the package within the alloted time. The cnc machine came together without any trouble, On completion when trying to run the cnc router software. I had an issue and STYLECNC team responded to my query within minutes and it turned out my anti virus software was the root of the problem. Now I start testing the cnc router and all ok. The machine is very solid and I think it is worth purchasing.
- Autumn from United StatesPosted a review for Small 5 Axis CNC Machining Center for sale on Oct 31, 2018
Very fast delivery from manufacturer. Assembled according to the English instructions. Powerful. I didn't expect that the 5 axis CNC machine would be so good. The engineers answer questions and help online. Recommend.

I've used this router a lot so far and it has held up really well. I want to make a cabinet with this machine when I get a chance.
Overall this is a very good CNC router machine. I have used this machine for a lot of renovation projects, and have gotten high-quality results out of it.
- Shawn Cupp from United StatesPosted a review for STYLECNC® 4 axis CNC Router for sale with cost price on Oct 28, 2018
Wood working is my hobby for many years. I am always interested to get a CNC machine to do some work difficulty by hand only. However, such machines are either too expensive or too small. Last year, I noticed this 4 axis CNC routher from STYLECNC. It is a CNC router with a reasonable size at a good price. I decided to give it a try. As expected, it's really an amazing machine. i love it so much. it can do many works, save so much time than by hand. highly recommended!!!

Not much to say that hasn't already been said. Don't let the professional machine snobs tell you that you need spend lots of money for the machine to make quality stuff at home! This is a fantastic entry-level machine for aspiring hobbyists.
- Christian from United StatesPosted a review for Affordable Linear ATC CNC Router with Auto Tool Changer on Oct 23, 2018
After connecting the power I used this cnc router for the first time to make some simple door. I was very impressed with this machine and accessories. They work seamlessly together.
I was using red oak to make door and table and it is beautiful after finishing. I didn't feel the need to do any hand sanding because there were no boo boos.

All in all, it is a great CNC router machine. I have used them all. This machine is great with low price. It does not need long on assembly. It just need to link electrical. Next year I will add cabinets to my products, and I will purchase a big CNC machine.
- Thomas from United StatesPosted a review for Affordable 4x8 CNC Router for sale with Multi-spindles changing automatically on Oct 08, 2018
I am building a monster-sized built-in entertainment cabinet and I need five doors. I want raised panels and this 4x8 CNC machine is making it happen. I made some of my own molds as well. I also recommend buying some CNC cutter. Everything is fine.
