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.
Probably not gonna cut anything stromger than warm butter & the odd pcb, but rather cheap...

Edit: just seen the postage ....£160!!! Ouch
Hank that is a Zenworks CNC

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