They're getting better at making CNC machines (even though the following line looks like gobbledegook, it's actually a clickable link to a chinese forum ...MyCNCBejing???)...

The control box looks like a high end audio amplifier...

It's hard to think of a way to make a CNC router what wouldn't do a good job of making that PCB. I guess if it was made from MDF...
Also notice how some of the holes aren't even in the center of the pads!

The grey machine is made from PVC...:hopelessness:

Re the grey machine, yeah, PVC...I know, I know...but I guess it boils down to what you're cutting (the zentoolworks CNC is made from a similar material and folks seem happy with it)...not everyone wants to mill girders! (as an aside, I always think of the IRN Bru advert whenever I hear the word girder Irn Bru Advert: Shipyard Boy - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mt_rU-Sh15g) "Made in Scotland from Gurrrrr-daaaas" !)

Re the smaller machine, I was just struck at how well put together it looked (especially the control box!)...compared to the usual Chinese fayre.

Anyway...shouldn't you be milling a girder? ;-)

Mind you, I did have a smile at this Chinese CNC Advert, check out the the "Our factory" photos...

(normally when you reveal your "factory" in an advert, it's because its modern, big, clean, bright & efficient looking - that place looks like a messy lock up!)

For the sake of clarity - I'm not knocking the fact they work where they do & what it looks like (& yes, I'm sure it's how a lot of big businesses started this way - fair play to them :encouragement: ...but probably best not to show the world your "factory", until it's erhm more "factory-esque"!!! ). As it goes their end product is better than the average Chinese 3020 offering - at least they're using ballnuts & have fitted limit switches.
