New Build for Decorative carving, Door panels and arched door rails

I am a cabinet maker in Pa. We recently moved and my rigger was under insured, he dropped my CNC that had an 8 turret head. So the machine is totaled and I am starting from the ground floor. I need a machine that I can machine some acanthus, that I can also machine my raised panel doors, and that I can do the arches on my cabinet rails.

Looking for any thoughts on the subject.

Thanks,
Mandy

Welcome.
It will take a bit of time to decide what size and features you require.
Then you need to get your parts ordered and delivered.
Then you have to build the beast.

Can you afford to be without a CNC for several months ?

Not trying to put you off. I love my machine.
If you look on my build you will see some carvings and door panels that I have done.
Look on the build log. It will give you some idea of the size of machines built and how long it took.
Best of luck.

Any salvageable parts from the damaged machine?

The machine has frame damage, there may be some salvageable parts. We have been quite busy since we moved. we haven't had a chance to really deal with it. It has an 8 turret head, it is an older machine and the heads are very large and heavy. It was a wonderful machine.
