Can this be programed with conventional CNC 'G' codes? What are the accuracy specs and what kind of warranty.

My advice, lose the router and install a spindle. They are just too noisy and a bit DIY. Even an air cool is better than that.

Second, looks great for machining ply and other sheet, , but there doesn't seem enough height for a vacuumed bed which for me is obligatory.

Also, how would small pieces be clamped? slots machined into the surface that clamped could be slotted into would help?
