Thread: Hi all just a few questions!
why not get someone else to build it for you if you don't have the time.
I'm sure some one could build you one to the spec you require at fraction of the cost of a black foot kit machine

Thanks for all your opinions,
I haven't replied sooner as I've been busy most evenings doing some prices for jobs and reading a book I picked up on the subject. As to the use of wood, it seems that the consensus is not to go near it and I guess it is obviously not as strong as metal but can a new one be bought or built by someone else as you suggested for my budget of £4000( electronics, and all necessary software incl.)
Anyone up for the project, 8x4 three axis with a short Z axis, London based would be better. In the meantime I've got to book myself in to a CAD course.
Wow that was a quick reply
I see that your'e based in Nottingham up the infamous M1 probably a bit to far for a project like this. I imagine that it would require quite a few visits before anything would get started. I could handle the M4 as I'm west London based or even the M3 but also I suppose its very much a question of closeness/ quality ratio so you never know. Do you have some pictures of your CNC machine that I could see.
Hiya, I reckon £4000 would get you a chinese 1200x1200x100 machine complete with computer and ready to go, but a 2400x1200 machine might be a bit more due to the size/freight.....
I origionally started out wanting to build a machine 3mt x 1mt a couple of years ago, eventually I went down the import route as it was so much easier :s Although I ended up with a 1200x1200, hehe.
If you wanted to check the quality etc you are most welcome to come and see/use mine
www.gmcnc.co.uk. They do look like decent machines and isn't that a 8x4 in the first page. Well find out for me the costs and maybe if its a decent price I will come and visit you.
Hiya, Will do as soon as I get back from my hols!
