Questions to Ask Before You Buy Used CNC Router for Sale

If you plan to buy a used CNC router for sale, you probably have certain elements of the purchase figured out, such as how many axes the machine will need, the size of its cutting bed, and the type of software you will use. However, because you are buying the equipment secondhand, you have to be concerned about more than its technical specifications. You must also guarantee the machine provides the reliability and performance you need on the production line. Asking the following questions will help ensure the machine satisfies your standards.

Who was the previous owner of the equipment?

One way to assess the condition of used CNC woodworking machines is to learn about the former owner. For example, if a woodworking factory had the equipment, it was probably operated longer and harder than it would have been if an individual or a trade school owned it. While you should not assume a certain type of owner indicates whether a router is in good or bad condition, the previous owner does you give you an idea of how strenuously the equipment was operated.

Has the equipment been reconditioned?

The next big aspect to find out is whether the equipment has been reconditioned. When used CNC woodworking machines are thoroughly cleaned on the interior, recalibrated, and have worn or malfunctioning parts replaced, they offer more value than pre-owned equipment that has merely been serviced according to the maintenance plan. You might pay a little more for a reconditioned router, but as payback you get equipment that offers the performance and dependability of a new router.

What does the machine’s maintenance record look like?

Regular maintenance will not prevent a machine from aging, but it will prevent it from prematurely breaking down. Before you consider buying a used CNC router for sale, you should take a close look at its official maintenance record. Because most woodworkers treat CNC routers like prized possessions, you will probably find most routers have a spotless maintenance record. If you happen to run across one with an inconsistent maintenance record, avoid buying it – no matter how tempting the price is.

Is the machine equipped with parts that have a bad reputation?

Some hardware contains recalcitrant parts that were not right from day one. This sometimes happens because a third party and not the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) made the parts. Trusting the third party has quality control measures that would reveal the problems with the parts, the OEM unassumingly implements them.

One advantage of buying pre-owned equipment instead of new machinery is you know which machines have bad parts. Other people have already used them and found out the hard way. Once the poor quality of the parts becomes known, a seller of secondhand equipment can replace them before the equipment is resold.
