    Thanks for all the responses - a lot of good point have been made and has given me things to ponder :)

    I was recently trawling Youtube and came across a channel called Ades Workshop - this guy bought a Warco 16B machine which looks reasonable both in terms of cost and quality

    His output looks ok from a hobbyist persepective - so my idea now taking on many of the above comments is to buy a machine akin to the 16B, fit a DRO and then use that to make a purpose but smaller CNC milling machine similar but Jazzcnc but smaller

    Sounds like you have a plan.
    Buy a mill to make a mill/router.

    I'd draw up some of the new machine first. Then you'll know which size Mill to get. Don't want to end up with something too small.

    Warco16b & Amadeal 25L are effectively the same machine.


    I've recently been looking at TBI C5 ballscrews for my 25L. I better get some cutting done so the machine can pay for them. They're tempting.
