Overview

With a table measuring 15-3/4" x 31-1/2", the CNC Shark is ideally suited for carvings and machining operations on a large variety of signs, doors and other small projects. It boasts impressive power, speed, accuracy, and ease of use. With its robust steel and high-density poly-ethylene construction, it can take accidental impacts that would normally damage or destroy an aluminum or MDF machine. The included clamping table features two hold-down slots for securing work anywhere along the length of the table. You supply a PC computer with USB 2.0 port and a Bosch Colt router (sold separately). Simply connect the USB cable to the controller box and the other end to your computer (not compatible with Mac computers).

Solid and accurate machine

John Posted November 20, 2014
Had the Shark up and running within 2 days. Great software, which I spent many days practicing carving and using the trial software before the purchase. The biggest problem was finding a star screw driver to do the assembly. I like the fact that the router can be replaced in the future, if needed. Shipping was excellent.

Good product

The Shark arrived on my doorstep in sturdy packaging. The box weighed around 90 pounds and the space was mostly filled with styrofoam to ensure the Shark's safety. It took over an hour to get everything assembled the way the online .pdf manual described.
After that, software installation was a breeze. I was up and running in no time. The Shark is easy to use and the included software ("a $900 value") actually does cost as much as Rockler claims. VCarve Pro ($600) and Cut3D ($300) can be purchased together for $850 on Vectric's website. It's an enticing enough packaging to make me choose the Shark over the new Piranha, since I value the 3D capabilities.
While the Shark includes a V bit, you'll also want to purchase some router bits of your own, including and end mill or two. If you don't have much experience with CNC machines, as I didn't, I recommend starting with a couple cheap bits that you won't mind ruining during the learning process.

Absolutely dependable

I have owned this almost 3 years and in that time have generated over 100 thousand dollars in income from it. It has never failed to perform. I built an enclosure for it right away so the dust stays in the box and is cleaned after each job. Every 25 to 50 hours of use I remove the cnc table and completely clean all surfaces and slides and lube it with spray on dry silicone. I went through two Colt routers before changing to the Dewalt DWP611 router. I have two of them and swap them out when I wear out motor brushes. Each of them have had 3 sets of brushes replaced. How many hours of use has the Shark had? I don't know, thousands I would guess. It has never failed me. The drive motors now make ticking sounds and there are other visual indications of wear and tear but it is still going strong. The MDF table has been flipped over and the T-slots have been repaired many times with superglue and epoxy. Wear and tear from countless clamp downs have eroded the underside and the table began to bow in those areas. I should really buy a new table but I repair it with wooden slats on the underside and more epoxy then resurface the table. Relatively cheap it may be, but what you get is not. I can only hope that the larger CNC Shark machines can boast this kind of reliability.
