Hi,

My first post here.

I am wondering if any of you guys have opinions on this mill;
http://www.axminster.co.uk/axminster-axminster-zx25m2-vertical-mill-drill-prod364975/

Were thinking of buying one of avbout that level for some small scale production. (like 3 small pieces a week). More importantly in the future we would like to upgrade the machine to CNC. First i'm wondering if it is at all possible to upgrade a machine like this. If not would anyone have a better suggestion. Given that I know i'll need to spend a few quid on tooling too I probably wouldn't be able to budget beyond 1000 for the mill.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Dave.
