We use 2bearing blocks on each rail to assure the cutforces are equally distributed over the rail toreduce the amount of wear and noise. Thetriple sealed bearing blocks assure that nomatter how much debris and dust build up onthe rails you will not get failure to the bearings.The design also makes the machine a selfcleaning system without the worry of wipingdown the rails or watching for build up. On ourShopSabre Routers the motion on all 3 of ouraxes are driven by high precision Ball Screwswith the highest diameters in our market. TheShopSabre Ball Screws also have Anti-Backlashball nuts mounted in angular contact bearingblocks to assure the highest accuracy possible.The ShopSabre CNC drives are all driven by1200 Oz/Inch Advanced Micro Stepper motorsor A/C Digital Super Servo Drives with matchingAmplifiers.

A business born of necessity,hard work, and inspiration
Years ago Jim Bombardo,founder of ShopSabre,had an idea to build a CNCmachine to do crafts forhis wife’s business. Jimknew that if he did nothave a machine capable ofproducing parts, he wouldhave many long hours ofback breaking work to do byhand. With a background inengineering and software,he started the project ofbuilding his own CNCmachine.After the initial days and weeks of research,Jim knew that he had to have a system thatwas an industrial design which would providefewer headaches and years of problem-freeservice. His first machine was a full ball screwdriven machine with industrial componentsthroughout. Now he could produce parts forhours with ease and great precision.After running the machine for some time,friends and acquaintances saw it and wereamazed by its fully welded construction, power,precision and overall quality. After getting offersto sell it and hours of convincing, Jim sold themachine and decided he would build anotherfor himself. Armed with experience and newideas, the second machine went together morequickly, and Jim was once again convinced tosell it.During the construction of the third machine,Jim had done further research in the CNCmarket and was amazed that no one offeredan industrial quality machine under 60,000.The only machines on the market were smallbolt-together machines, and the componentsbeing used were simply hobbyist in quality.After seeing everything and doing this research,Jim decided to take this third machine to theWoodworkers show in Atlanta.During the show he received a lot of attentionand accolades for the machine design. Whenthe show was finished they had over a dozenrequest for orders. Every client was willing towait for the machine as they understood thequality and components put into each one.After arriving back home, a facility wasconstructed for the manufacturing of the newCNC machines, and ShopSabre was born.Jim had started with himself, two brothers, foursons, two cousins and his wife.ShopSabre is a self-funded company and themachines are constructed from the ground upwith every component being closely monitoredto ensure it works flawlessly. ShopSabre’sphilosophy is simple: Customer Service isEverything. Each machine is tested for hoursbefore it leaves to ensure power, precision,quality and reliability.Currently there are over 1,000 machinesaround the world in over 19 countries.ShopSabre CNC has experienced enormousgrowth in the past few years, and hasreceived recognition from some of the largestmanufacturers of cabinets, aerospace parts andequipment, signs and many other industries.Business owners and engineers are seeing thatyou do not have to spend 100k or more on amachine that can produce precision parts threeshifts a day every day of the week.26151 Newton CircleElko, Minnesota 55020Toll Free: 800-493-6021Local: 952-461-4570ShopSabre is continuing to be on the cuttingedge of CNC technology with the release inJanuary ’08 of its fastest and most powerfulmachine under 100,000.
