Please do not put shop bot in the same sentence as a rockler shark not even close. as a owner of a 5×10 machine with a 4 hp spindle and vac hold down I am very pleased with my purchase 4 years ago.a brand new bot will run about 25k ish software another 2k, alot less for schools. call them .why 10hp vac hold down? way overkill. worried about the noise of a 3.5 hp router? listen to a 10 hp vac run . do your research nylon screws, t tracks, clamps, vac pods, fein shopvacs, yes fein shopvacs. I run 2 with an 8 zone table and plywood dont move. auto tool change for a high school why? add a 4 axis for a indexer (cnc lathe) plenty of subject matter ,cabinets, signage , rotary. Did I mention support? shopbot is manufactured in north carolina. check out the forum you wont be disapointed
