I chanced upon an Italian CNC store, http://www.cnc-store.it and seeing the 'English' button and 'delivery throughout Europe' thought I'd take a look around...
Most prices are so-so.
They sell a couple of kits at a cost. The page for their large flat machine has a couple of assembly drawings, which makes interesting viewing for a numpty like me :)
They sell a few ready cut and drilled mounting plates, the Z plate for example may interest some, at a cost.
What caught my eye were the prices of the HiWin parts: HGH15 pre-load A, standard precision for €26,74 ! That's about £22.28 in real money AND includes tax - or so it says. HGR15R rail about £4.42 per 100mm, again including tax. These prices are about 30% less than I've found from UK stores.
I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to find somewhere cheaper. Just thought I'd share.
Forgot to mention, they sell 180mm wide aluminium profile too. Widest I've found from the usual UK peeps is 160mm.
