Has anyone seen the Studiomill:
studiomill.co.uk Studiomill - educational CNC CAD CAM machines, 3d tutorials ... (http://studiomill.co.uk/)
looks like a bit different to the other small mill designs - looks like a 4 or maybe 5 axis?

They seem to be going for around 7200 aimed at schools etc.
studiomill on amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Studiomill-Educational-CNC-milling-machine/dp/B0054SDLVI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1385842344&sr=8-1&keywords=studiomill)

I think I spotted some unsupported rails in there - although they do say its meant for working with plastics, wax, woods, resins and foams - so its probably OK! I think it might be a faster alternative to those filament 3D printers (which might be a bit slow for classroom uses).

[edit]
Heres another mini 5-axis:

Software for 5-axis CAM might be the problem for "home desktop 5-axis machining" - although the Studiomill 3D is bundled with a CAM package.

Check out pocketnc tutorial, they demonstrate the 5 axis programming :-)
