First time poster long time lurker :) so be gentle
I have decided to get one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CNC-3020T-...0AAOSwdIFX139b Hope it is OK to post link to item.
Aside from the fact that i am very nervous from spending this much on a machine /company i know very little about, and it seems to be very much 50/50 for good / bad experiences from using this machine on the this forum, it is something i can, and will enjoy - so before i talk myself out of it again for another month could someone address my final concern.
it shows a picture on the control box with a 220V AC given we are 240v in the UK is this going to go pop if i plug it in without a step voltage transformer? or am i going to be OK?
If someone would be kind enough to confirm either way i would be very grateful and might even hit the order button ..!!
Many thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum Sherpa.
The power will be ok for the mains. But you are being optimistic regarding the 50/50 I would put it at 0.5/99.5 do you have an idea what you want to do with this as they do make a good doorstop when they break down in a few weeks. Sorry to put a dampener on it just make sure you understand what you are buying.

Thanks for the reply - i have decided to build my own i think A)I have the skills to do it, and i would enjoy building one B)This forum and the clever / helpful people have inspired me to build something C) at least i will have the pleasure of working out what is wrong with my build than getting annoyed that a pre "built" one is not working after shelling out £££'s
so time to put pen to paper coffee and search the build logs :)
