If you're cutting panels on a small table saw, consider a Striebig panel saw instead! Striebig machines are great for small shops cutting sheet goods, and provide a cleaner, safer, and more efficient method.
If you're considering a router, buy a Striebig first and work your way up to a CNC. Your Striebig can be a valuable tool to compliment your CNC for parts that don't need machining.
