I purchased a Legacy Arty 58 with a water cooled spindle in April of this year. The 5 axis option is very powerful. I would contact Andy Anderson @ Legacy and discuss your project with him to see what he can do for you. They are based in Utah. Do not get the Art Cam Express software. The only software you want to deal with is Aspire. I can vouch that the water cooled spindle is the way to go with regard to noise and/or reliability. You can stand next to mine and have a conversation w/o raising your voice. The DC and the barrel fan I have running in my shop make more noise than the CNC. Holding down the material to be cut is a major issue and I would refer you to others for a better system than the one I use. I am assuming since you have a school shop, you have a DC system of some nature. I also looked at the Laguna systems and while the price was interesting, their technical assistance was sketchy at best and their flyers, sales promotions, etc. were an embarrassment.
