This is just a discussion topic at this time and my CNC is not for sale! However, I was just wondering if there was a market out there for it. I have the Legacy Arty 58 CNC that is about 3 years old now. I opened a small commercial woodshop as a retirement business and it’s getting to be about time to shut it down. I’ll keep most of my tools, but the CNC is too much to move to my garage so when I do shut the shop down it will get sold.

I have probably close to $18k into it by the time you factor in router bits, software, and all the other things that go along with it. (Software includes the full version of Aspire 4.0 that is $2k. I think I can sell the software and transfer the license, but haven’t looked into that yet.) I’d include everything in the package. I haven’t thought about a sales price yet, but I realize I can’t even get close to what I have in it. My guess is it will be less than half of what I have in it assuming I can include all the software. The current version of the Arty sells for $14,100 and the bed on the new version is a little bigger than mine. The work area on mine is 18” by 58” and the new one is 25” by 58”. Mine has the 220volt water cooled spindle which is standard on the new one now. And if you bought a new one $14k it would take $3k or $4k more for bits and accessories and software.

Anyway, the point of the post is to see what kind of market there may be out there. Anybody interested or have any idea if there is a good market for these smaller CNC’s? If I find out the most I can sell it for is $5k or something like that, I’d just keep the thing and find a place for it, but if there is a good market I’d let it go.

f its not for sale, it should not be here. You should take your question to the cnc section. I ll be happy to engage there as I m looking for a cnc not necessarily that one, but been looking for a while so I’ve seen a lot of them at varying prices etc. Interesting topic.

I think this is the best spot for it. If I put this on the CNC section I’m sure it would get deleted by the Admin as not the appropriate place to discuss selling tools. If you have some specific questions about mine you can message me or post them here.

It’s mainly not for sale now as I have to wait until after the first of the year to sell it because of some tax consequences in selling it too soon. There is also another issue that should get resolved in November or maybe December that will affect whether I’m closing my shop sooner or later! Once those issues are resolved, then depending on the outcome, it will be for sale.

Have your say...
