    Have been looking for a newbie starter -machine of some sort. Someone locally asked me to put in a price for his project, which looks a bit like this (no it isn't this one):


    - except made of aluminium -profile (not solid material).
    - Travels some 12" x 10" x 3.5"
    - Each axis has got ball screws
    - Stepper motors
    - Board included

    * Excluded items (I would have to buy myself, elsewhere):
    - power supply 48V
    - Kress drill/grinder

    So apart from these, it would be a working setup.

    Please how much would be a fair price
    a) for a buyer?
    b) for a seller?
    c) rough cost of parts? (or do I need to ask further questions, to answer this?)

    I kind of would like to take a deep dive, and build my own from scratch, but not sure if I am ready for it yet. (if you can think of some relatively straightforward kit or project, please suggest).

    Any views welcome

    Cheers for a great forum
