    For milling pcbs, the sabel is just dandy......re the lack of supported rails - the machine's working area is only 20 x 18cm, so for me at least, this is of little concern (I only mill acrylic & pcbs)


    To put this into some context ...it cost me about 440 delivered for the frame/motors only (including import duties/taxes, you might want to drop the seller an email - http://myworld.ebay.com/motorstar01/...id=p4340.l2559 ...if he can still surce them, you'll save about 100 vs buing in europe) ....sure I could have likely built a machine with supported rails for that....but I needed to crack on and get milling.

    I think I'd have preferred 10mm Dural to 10mm PVC. Otherwise it's fine. :(

    has just offered me the machine for USD 600 including shipping to my address. No drivers or spindle, but not a bad price methinks.

    That's about what I paid...you need to add on about 50-60ish for import duties (assuming you can persuade the seller to massage the [delared ..cough...value] a little!), so about 450 through your door.
