    So I'm looking to buy a 34" or 54" US cutter SC cutter. I'm thinking for 99% of my cuts, a 34" should work.
    Is there some reasons or ideas I may not have considered that would lead me to a 54" ???

    All suggestions or opinions are welcome, as well as why not to buy a US cutter brand.

    I'm not in a high production shop, just working out of my garage to provide items for several websites I have and take care of. So while I would like it to get real busy, I'm just starting out and trying to minimize my startup cost.

    Thanks !

    US cutter is considered a budget brand but it's not horrible. They can be very good startup machines. Also, don't be fooled by the US part of their name. They are 100% Chinese. 34" should be good. Most people start with a 24" and move up from there as needed.

    Get the biggest you can reliably afford... that 35" job could be just around the corner.
    Speaking from someone who has been through a 24", a 54" and now a 64" cutter...

    34 will do a lot.
