    If I wasn't so skint right now I would be buying this today ;)

    At prices like that it's not worth building an 8*4 I'd just buy one I have no doubt 1k and you can get that working and 2k and you can get working like new.

    I always think of these as 8*4 machines lol as that's what I mostly would use it for but the ability to do 10*5 would be very useful but only occasionally. If i do build my own I will build it to have a workspace of 3m*1.6m because you never know when you need those extra inches ;) Space is not an issue to me at the moment within reason I could fit 3 of these machines in ;)

    This machine would be spot on for what I want, I would then convert what I'm building now into an aluminium machine for cutting molds for vac forming and use the big one for wood only.

    the frame could i make it out of 50x50x3 mm or do i need to use bigger and heaver steel?
    i found this shop in holland i think the price is ok because i need supported rails of 3 meter long

    You need to draw this up in Cad otherwise you will waste a lot on money quickly. What do you mean by "the frame" its hard for people to advise you without the CAD drawing.

    At some point you will need CAD and CAM Fusion360 is good and free

    I know people love Fusion but cloud computing is about as secure as my Vauxhall Nova was (Was stolen 5 times lol)

    if you're data has no financial potential then use fusion if you data is valuable avoid clouds.

    My bank has been hacked twice in 6 years and virgin media last week, I have no faith in secure cloud computing at all.

    I know it's time to upgrade my cad so going to buy this package I think

    Seems very good value for a semi pro workshop solution.
