Thread: Wanted - small bench cnc mill
My son has been awarded a small grant by the Princess's Trust for a project which requires maching a prototype using acrylic and nylon materials.
He is looking for a cheap secondhand bench mill with a working area of 10" x 10" preferably local to our home town of Nottingham.
Thanks in advance.
Mill or router?
The reason I ask is that most mills have a longer X travel to Y.
To get 10" in the Y requires quite a big mill, heavy and expensive. Most of the hobby mills X3, SX3, WM16 etc are limited to about 6" in the YJohn S -
For some reason i associate routers with woodworking and mills with metalworking, but not sure where plastics fit in my scheme of things :)
Ok then, so what we really need is a router!
I have looked on ebay at the chinese models but am wary of the sellers (not many machines appear in their feedback) and also the build quality of those machines.
Any pointers would be much appreciated!
