The Carve King 2 is a leap forward in affordable CNC. It builds on the years of customer feedback on our very successful original Carve King. The Carve King 2 has an upgraded frame design that increases rigidity, improved electronics allowing for 20% faster traverse speeds, and was re-designed to allow for easier assembly. The control board is also now compatible with our precision touch plate.
This bundle includes the Carve King 2 kit, Makita 1.25HP RT0701C router, our solid aluminum router mount, one 1/4″ carbide end mill, and basic clamps. This is all the hardware you need to get going.

The software you need is free. Autodesk offers all hobbyists a free license (not a trial) for design software called Fusion 360. Note that Fusion no longer outputs rapid traverses for those on a free personal license, but you can easily overcome this with our G Code Rapidizer. You can control the machine with the MillRight CNC version of Universal G Code Sender, which is free on our resources page. We also sell Vectric software.
