    Basic Tracer/Edger Recommendations

    Hi there, we are considering updating our tracer and edger. We don't do super high volume, maybe 500-700 jobs a year. We are fine with sending drill mount and wrap work out. Any recommendations for a good, easy to use system?

    I've always have been a fan of dry cut systems. You can find rebuilt units @ a great savings. Consider new purchase and take a section 179 for tax purposes.

    I would look at the Delta 200 system from Essilor Instruments. https://www.essilorinstrumentsusa.co...a-100-200-300/

    You could buy a used Santinelli 9000 or Essilor Kappa. If you must buy new, consider an entry Coburn machine. Whatever you get, at least make sure the machine grooves.
