The All-U-Need cabbing machine is a great starting machine for cabbing if you are not ready to invest a huge amount of money or if you want the convenience of a small and light-weight machine. This is the machine I started with.  They have 6″ and 8″ as well as flat or slanted machines.

A trim saw is a must for making cabs so that you can cut your slabs the shapes you want.  Ti-tech offers 4/5″ or 6″ trim saws.

The Inland Swap-Top is a versatile machine that allows you to switch the tops for a cabbing machine, trim saw or grinder all on the same base.

If you are ready for the next level in cabbing, a band saw will allow you flexibility to cut more unique shapes.
