Good Evening All,

A new member here so go easy on me :welcoming:

Myself and Ex-Engineer Dad are interested in purchasing a CNC Mill (Coverted Manual Mill etc). We have up to 2000 to spend so have looked at converting ourselves but ideally would like to purchase a pre-converted mill.

We'll be milling mainly 4mm mild steel, I've attached an example item that we traditionally get laser cut but need the lead time a lot lower hence the purchase reason.

10385

So if you can assist or provide I thank you in advance.

David

Hello, I assume you looked on ebay or are you unsure what to buy ?, also there's a 'for sale' section on this forum if you missed it.

This is quite a nice one with some pedigree.

Hey John,

Thanks for this, its already on my watch list and I remember seeing a fellow member on this forum selling the item. Something like this would be ideal (depending on cost) for our needs.

P.S I like your display picture, I have a packet next to me right now!
