It looks like a very good machine. Sounds kind of old from the posts and videos on youtube. I am not worried about software, as I can get what I need easily. I just prefer drawing things up in sketchup because it's so easy to use. I just want a cnc machine that will cut stuff out of fan fold foam and thin carbon fiber and wood. I guess that depends on the cutting tool? I would definately go with a large cutting tool.
You definatly want a gantry router for cutting wood and to do CF you will need a proper dust collection system and tooling.

I designed my own router but at the time the Joes routers were the one of the best DIY routers. They have been around for a long time and have been revised several times and iterations.

Here is a pic of mine when it was clean and new, lol.

Thanks,
I think I had about $2400 in the building of it and I had a buddy TIG it all together for a case of beer, lol. It has been working good for about 6 years now.
