Let me preface this by saying I am a relative novice to CNC Routers in the woodworking realm. I recently took a new teaching position and am in the process of getting the somewhat undersized shop set up how I’d prefer and trying to improve work flow among other things. Anyway, we’ve got this old ShopBot none of the present instructors know how to run it, how old it is, or really how it came to be. The table is approximately 10’x6’ and has a standalone computer hooked up to it. The software that runs it seems really clunky and limited, frankly no one can really get it to do much of anything. So all this leads me to the following questions:
What exactly do we have here?
If it is worth keeping, what if anything can be done to bring it into the present day?
If it isn’t worth keeping in our setting is there a market for it elsewhere? If so, what is a price that we could move it at?
Thanks in advance.
