A Small Shop CNC that Turns, Too

Small and medium sized shops looking to step up to CNC routing may wish to take a look at the Maverick 3X5 from Legacy. From now until January 15th, 2021, the company is offering a $2,021 discount on the basic machine. This is not a 3-foot x 5-foot worktable – the name refers to the fact that it has three workstations that can handle flat work, joinery and turning. The standard factory worktable is 49” x 24” x 8”, but it’s expandable up to 56” x 36”. The rotary capacity is an impressive 50” long x 10” in diameter, so it will make balusters, posts, spindles, newels and the like. The machine comes with a liquid cooled 3 HP spindle for all-day-long cabinet work. The Smart Tool touch-pad measures each tool as it is used, so it’s “the closest thing you can get to ATC” (automatic tool changing). The controller is loaded with features and the Conversational CAM feature doesn’t require any complicated 3D modeling. Legacy machines are designed and manufactured in Springville, Utah. The basic 3X5 lists at $17,995 and is on sale for $15,974. Legacy also offers financing, and even deferred payments up to 180 days. Contact the company for details.
