Philadelphia or Atlanta Maker Spaces with a Shapeoko XXL CNC

I am considering purchasing a Shapeoko XXL CNC Router but would like to see one in person and test it out before I purchase. Anyone know of or belong to a makers space in either Philadelphia or Atlanta where this particular CNC is in operation? I live outside of Philadelphia, but my company is based outside of Atlanta and I am there on a regular basis. I have done some research online, but would love to see one in personal and try it out. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

When I bought mine, I thought that all these nice folks here on the forum can’t be wrong! :smiley:
I was right!
Just buy it. There’s really nothing else at this price point, and a hundred other reasons.


Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a publicly accessible machine in either locale:

Some guy on the FB group created a world map where Shapeoko users can register their location, and there seems to be a couple of Shapeoko users around Atlanta and Philly:

Maybe try to reach out to them asking for a demo ?

We have one at the Annapolis Makerspace, which is a bit of a haul from you, but if you happen to be driving down from Philly to this area, please reach out and I’d love to show you the machine.

Julien, thank you for this link. I am going to try and contact a couple of the local owners to see if I can a demo. Very helpful. Thanks!

Will, I appreciate the feedback. Thank you!
