Anyone Want My Shapeoko 2 CNC Machine?

Hey folks. You may recall the Shapeoko 2 CNC machine that I picked up from Inventables a few months back. Since then I’ve acquired Inventables newest CNC machine and no longer need the Shapeoko 2. There’s nothing wrong with the Shapeoko 2, I just won’t use it now that I have a larger machine. So I’d like to give it away to someone else who would actually use it.

About the Machine

The machine will come with the original rotary tool and the mounts to use it. It will also come with the mounts I made for the Bosch Colt router but will not come with the Bosch Colt router itself. All the electronics and mechanics of the machine are in working order. Also included are the very ugly but functional hold down blocks that I made and the cardboard dust shields I used to protect the Y axis rails from dust while cutting. I will ship the machine partially disasembled for two reasons. First, it’s cheaper to ship it that way. Second, and more importantly, I want whoever gets it to have to partially build the machine. Not because I’m a jerk but because it will give you a better understanding of how it functions.

    • It should be showing on this page now. I had the preview working last night but for some reason the HTML changed as it posted this morning. Sorry for that.

  1. Jay, I have wanted a CNC Router for years but every time I save up for one, life gets in the way. This would be a great way for me to enter into the realm of CNC and finally get over the hurdle. Thanks for the opportunity.

    • You just need to stand naked in a public space on one leg holding a full set of fine bone china dinner plates in your left hand while playing fetch with a great dane puppy or click on the link that says a Rafflecopter giveaway just above the last picture that Jay has above these comments.

      • It should be showing on this page now. I had the preview working last night but for some reason the HTML changed as it posted this morning. Sorry for that.

      • I tried the naked thing you suggested. I must not have good balance because it did not go well. Since I followed through, I hope I am truly entered. The police said I will certainly be “registered”, but they weren’t talking about this contest.

    Been trying to justify purchase of one of these. Recently semi retired and money tight. So to win would be great no matter the cost of shipping it would be great. T
    Thanks for opportunity Jay and Inventables who gave you machine.

  16. Would love to have a cnc machine. Im not in the USA so i would have to pay for shipping. Its a bit of a gamble as i have no idea what the amount would be. An estimate would be helpful.

  17. Being a retired wood worker, I am always on the lookout for bargains, this one being no exception. Perhaps I will need to make some more room in my little shop for this gem of an instrument? :)

  18. Been try to save up to get one for over a year now… been on workshare(partial unemployment). Plus i lived in Merian,MS for close to 10 years… so if ya could stuff a few extra votes for me in the box…. ;)

  25. Hi Jay,
    I’ve been following your YouTube videos with a lot of interest. That’s how I found out about this giveaway. I think it is an excellent way to motivate people into doing new things and being creative.
    Keep up the good work!

  26. Hello Jay,

    I’m a beginning woodworker in Groningen, The Netherlands. I started by watching tons of vids on youtube, including yours. Im hoping to make a living out of it. Its almost impossible to find a steady job here. My father passed away in Nov 2012. So i’ve been taking care of my mother since then. That makes having a steady job completely impossible. I dedicated one room to be a small (but humble) workplace/shop. I bought some hand tools and machines with a small inheritance my father left me. The next thing on my list is a CNC but i spent all of the inheritance. So would absolutely be delighted if you would give away your shapeoko 2 to me. If not, still the best to you. Your vids have helped me a lot so far and i definitely think they will in the future.

  27. Hello, Jay!

    I came to your youtube channel accidentally by some references in another youtube videos… And then I watch all your videos! Almost in a row! :) Your videos are great! I learn SketchUp (space-bar-triple-click-g-for-component!), I found so many little things to improve my workshop and my tools! Thanks for sharing!

    And also, thanks to your “Interesting Stuff From Around The Web”, now I have about 20 very interesting woodworking channels in my youtube subscriptions (it was about 40, but I have no time to watch it all).

  53. Great giveaway. Could definitely use to definitely enhance my projects. I watch a lot of videos and wish I could afford to follow others in making purchases such as this to make my projects stand out.

  54. Way cool. I see several applications for this unit, cool drawer fronts, cool jewelry box lid, cool plexiglass cupboard door inserts. Hey, I wonder if you could do something like on a mirror without breaking it with a glass bit? My woodworking would never be the same. Thanks for offering up this little gemstone up with a giveaway.

  55. Thanks for all your vids and project plans and thank you for the opportunity to enter this free giveaway for your Shapeoko 2 CNC machine. Hopefully next year will be Red Wings all the way. GO WINGS

  56. Our maker space has a Shapeoko that is not being used. Your video has been a godsend in learning it quickly. Thank you.

  57. Hey Jay,
    nice Giceaway you have. I am from Germany but you make good Video Stuff. I hope you make more of them.

  58. I enjoy your videos. It’s obvious that you enjoy the work and you know what you a re doing…

  59. The video’s are great, you give a lot of inspiration for different projects. You think outside the box.

  60. I’m new to woodworking and watch your vids and take your ideas (sorry) all the time. Sure would like to take your Shapeoko as well…lol
    Never heard of it until you did your vid. Tooooooo cool.
    Thanks for all you do and the actual inspiration.

  61. Jay, thank you for being fair abuot shipping. All American woodworkers could learn from you! Hope I win.

  62. Jay I just love watching your videos. I am hooked on woodworking projects. I only watch your For real. I think you are amazing. Thanks so much for sharing so much with your viewers. So inspirational.

  63. Awesome and very informative Videos… I have entered for the Shapeoko… Thanks, Roger

  64. I have saved every one of your videos & email regarding woodworking. Thank you for the opportunity to have something in my garage workshop I could only dream of owning. I had to look up on the internet on what this “awesome” machine was all about. Good luck to all who entered.

  65. I’ve been a woodworker for awhile now and that would be a great addition to my arsenal of wood eating machines LOL.
    Jay you make good videos, keep up the great ideas & projects.
    Good luck to all has entered in this great give away….. Thanks jay for this chance to win this CNC machine for those that just cant quite afford this machine just yet ??????

  66. Jay like your videos and have purchased some of your plans looking forward to to building them. I’m looking into buying a CNC machine not sure which one to get. What one did you upgrade to and why that one?

  67. I am new(er) to woodworking, and I am glad I found your channel. I have been looking for woodworking videos to get me going on new projects. Thanks for providing the opportunity to get a CNC mill! God bless.

  68. I think your Paulk themed and designed work table is great. Now that I have seen yours in the 8′ length, I think I will get your plans and cut mine down to 3′ by 6 foot. My garage is more full up then yours, and my old work table has been beaten to beyond any repairs. It is over 25 years old so it need to be put out to pasture, like me I suppose. Thanks again, Mike

  69. Your work and the videos you create are top of the mark, but it’s your videography I wish more YouTubers would study and learn from. I cracked up when I watched you drilling to the music! I show your videos to people just for the entertainment! (Go Sharks! Sorry.)

  70. Jay, The only tools I have is my dads old hammer a dull handsaw& best of all my pocket knife; I sure could use that CNC machine, you got there, then all I will need is some of that electricity the town folks have here in the Ozarks. :)

  71. Jay I can’t believe you and your wife were able to move that shed. Granted, like you said it is just aluminum and some wood, but you had the weather against you.It is a nice size for your gardening “stuff”. Did it come with a ramp or are you making one? My lawn was slightly slopped so I had a landscaper come in and dig down to level it out, put down weed block and then gravel, lots of gravel. This was all held in by using 4×4’s which are 2 rows all the way around then they set the shed on the gravel. Once there , I was not going to move it. It’s a pre-built Carefree building 10’x16′ and that puppy is there for my life time. Good luck with it and in no time it’ll be filled up.

  72. You site is FANTASTIC !!!
    I look forward to visiting it every week.
    Keep up the site . . . believe me … it is appreciated.

  73. I just founded your channel and I love it. Also I would like to enter for the giveaway cnc machine. I have already installed Turbo Cad, Vcarve Pro and Aspire on my computer but I dont have a CNC machine yet. This will be a perfect gift. Thank you.

  74. Thanks for the contest Jay. If I win I would gladly pay for the shipping. Love the vids and ideas you come up with among the many other Youtube woodworking faves :)

  75. Thank you for your videos and thank you for the ton of information you are supplying us all :)

  76. I have my fingers crossed that I win the CNC, it would sure help me in what I do. Thanks for the contest, Jay!
