    Laguna IQ used?

    There is a used Laguna IQ in my area for sale, or is a few years old and includes aspire software. It seems to be in good condition, although I have not seen it in person run yet. It has the spindle that is water cooled from water in a bucket, is that how the IQ is cooled? Any way, they are asking 4800.00 for it. Good deal? Any one with experience with these machines? I was actually looking at a couple other machines with a 2 x 4 footprint. Opionons, thoughts? Thanks

    Aspire is $2000 alone but remember that there is a $50 charge to switch it over that sounds like a good deal if it works.

    I would say check it out and if everything is running right and looks good go for it. We have several Laguna tools now from there CNC routers to there dust collectors all running great with little to no problems ,Knock on Wood :-) . As Jerome has stated the Aspire program alone is $2000

    The base model IQ is $5999, this includes V carve which is more than enough software unless your working in 3D.

    Thanks for the replies. I am meeting with the owner in a couple days, he has been out of town for the holidays. I did ask if he was able to transfer the software and he said he was the first and only owner of both, so we should be good to go. If all looks good, I will be the new owner

    Be aware a software transfer may not include an upgrade. A transfer fee will get you the option to buy the software upgrades. Aspire upgrade is about $400. Just want you to be aware of the value you are getting. Call the Vectric folks. They will help you get everything squared away.
    Glad its my shop I am responsible for - I only have to make me happy.
