I couldn’t find a current version of the differences between the SparkFun and Carbide3D versions of the Shapeoko (aside from the color). Currently SparkFun has theirs on sale for $900, and the Dewalt 611 is on sale for $100, but I wonder if I’m missing out on anything!
The first thing I noticed was SparkFun doesn’t mention the Summer 2016 upgrades, specifically the homing switches. I’d rather save the $100 and get the Dewalt router over the Makita, but not if I’m missing out on things I’m unaware of!
I’m a complete CNC newbie, this would be my first machine.
