    Hi all,

    I am in need of some help.
    I am looking to buy CNC machine.

    I am doing small crafts. Currently using laser engraver. Engraving small wood pieces of about 5cm on 5 cm maximum.

    Currently looking to make engravements on metal wrist watches. Was looking at laser engravers, but they look costly currently.
    So I am in need to engrave some texts or simple logos on the back of metal wristwatch. My budget is about 1200.

    What would be the best solution?

    Many thanks

    Just to add, any other solution which sorts out my needs is suitable. I have recommended fibre laser, however at this moment of time it is a bit too costly and does not fit into my budget

    I think you are going to find it hard to source a suitable machine for that budget.
    To do such fine work with a router & engraving bit requires precision beyond machines in that budget.
    (Unless you are prepared to make your own machine, even then you will struggle)

    Perhaps you could look for a second hand one of these?
