Lot of Camaster lovers here!
I have an FMT Patriot 4x8 with atc. It's been fantastic, very easy to use and has an industrial controller, so lots of physical buttons etc to use while machine is running, easier than a mouse IMHO.
I looked at the main players in this price point - CM, SS, TCNC, and settled on the Patriot after 6 months of research.
I'm now upgrading, and FMT is letting me trade in my 4x8 for a 5x10. That's pretty cool.
In the end the main factors I chose FMT were;
Footprint - smallest of these machines.
Company - FMT is part of DMS who make true industrial, aerospace routers. Larger company, more intellectual power and experience.
Controller - see above
Build - very well designed - sometimes I wish you could pass long boards through, but that footprint!
Pricing - I liked that I could build it on the website and get exact cost and options. I found that when I looked at similar machines, I took a while, and then they were as much as the FMT. Didn't like some of the salesmen at some places.
Support - has been excellent.
Options - easy to understand.
Always buy your second machine first, especially if it's used in business.
Never buy a machine without a tool changer - it really is a game changer and will pay for it's self very quickly.
Buy a vacuum machine if you can afford it.
Get a bigger vacuum than the base model - I have a 8.6hp Becker RV, great at 1/4 table, some issues with small parts when nesting.
If you're doing solid wood like me, get a rotary vane, quieter than a blower, better hold down if you fixture correctly.
