Hi folks,

Just introducing myself, I've been busy reading through the forum in "data gathering mode" for some time. Excellent website hope to be a fairly active member!
I was originally planning to build a CNC however due to various reason's I ended up buying one in kit form from a UK company:rofl:
yes, I had a large sum of money burning a hole in my pocket, but ..well you could get run over by a bus tomorrow! and you can't take it with you!

I had a limit on my spending but very few ready built machines to choose from, I noticed 2nd hand ones seem to be rarer than I thought, and after months and months of monitoring ebay and the like I took the plunge:surprised:

So Now i'm the proud owner of an A3 size machine, time consuming but fairly easy to put together (instructions are not supplied).
Got a couple of minor problems which I'm trying to sort out with the company.
I've taken photos of the 'build' i.e bolting it together!:heehee:
but i've yet to get it going...I'll keep you posted....if anyone's interested!

Thanks for the welcome folks

here's a few photos to wet your appetite

Here's the box it all came in, with a can of beans to give you some idea of what to expect through the letterbox.:heehee:

The second photo shows everything unpacked.

and the last photo shows my 15yr old helping to put it together, start 'em young I say!

Hopefully the photos have uploaded and can be moused over

Can you guess what it is yet!?!?!?

Nice clear pic’s neo, start a build log in the build log section.

I look forward to seeing how one of these Merchant Dice units go together, will be good to see and also once it starts cutting something.
