    Keep the heat down and keep as much sawdust as you can out of the router.

    My main concern is that you'll have the tooling to do the job from start to finish.

    Yep - exactly how it's done.
    I have an advantage though because I have 2 55" and 1 42" tracks

    UFOs

    I think I saw one once when I was a kid.
    This ball of light - actually three of them - making no sound flew over my head one night.

    Makita 18V had/has the best selection of tools that I used so that's what I went with.

    You can buy the CNC, use it for what you need it for, then in your slack time, you can take on CNC work.
