I think you need to decide what you want to use your CNC for and the size, this will give you the basis to select your com...

I would strip the machine down, fine sand the plywood then prime and paint, if the machine is small you could get away with rattle can spray.

Re: CNC router in damp workshop

Hi Max,
Any machine in a non-insulated workshop is liable to dampness, the blankets are a good start, my workshop is 300 yards from the Atlantic l use blankets to cover my machines when not in use.

What is the machined board is your CNC made from ?
