    A laser engraving machine can be purchased from between 600-40,000 but budget normally plays a huge part in what you end up with. We use laser cutters/engravers for our business and they cost 4500 each and they are still considered to be at the budget end. I'd say wait until you can afford to pay a few thousand at least and dont be temped to buy one from ebay/China unless you really know what you are doing. When lasers break down they can cost a small fortune to get up and running again so bare this in mind also.

    I recommend you look in aliexpress.com. There are many different proposals for CNC Routers. You know the Chinese kept low prices.
