It looks nice. When you have the machine open the control panel and see if you have driver for each axis or there is something funny like 2 motors on one driver. Which is typical for Chinese machines. If so, buy one more motor driver and you should be ok.

I've seen the same one on there before, maybe not the exact one but one similar and the photos were the same too.
I'll be interested to hear when you have actually got it.

Hi Bud
Well I have it but its not installed yet as I need to move it into my workshop But I have run it up for a while and seen it working
and I am very very impressed not at all like the Strike machine in any way ,,,,every thing about the machine is substantial.
The frame is 10mm welded steel and not one bit of movement and ridgid as hell the Gantry is 14mm cast iron with webbing and the table is a vac bed with 4 seperate zones so you can do a small job or a full size job that covers the whole bed and the 4th axis will take a job piece up to a meter long and 150mm square and even that is 1 inch aluminium .
I am evil though as I lost a lot of money on the Strike machine and I thought to myself Pete you were such a nob end in buying the strike crap
If you find yourself in my area bud you would be made most welcome to come and have a play with the machine and see what you think.

Its good to see that model.
But I like to give one suggestion. Its good to buy new one but if you don't have any idea about this model then 1st you have to do experiment on second hand model, then go for new one.
Thank you.

I think there is more than one available having seen it before... Perhaps ex-demo?
