Thread: newbie machine owner..
Thought it time to post here having been following for the last few months...
Having used friends' machines at various times over the last 10 years or so, due to one closing his business, another moving & putting machine in storage, lost touch with another, & so on.... thought I'd buy my own little toy... from China (deep intake of breath from many)... still sitting on the new table awaiting attention as work gets in the way...
Hi Geoff, wellcome to the site. No deep intake of breath here - maybe some heavy breathing (I love all cnc machines).Ignore the work and start playing. Good luck. G.
What have you bought ?John S -
Welcome to the forum Geoff, biggest problem with a lot of stuff coming from China is the insturction manuals & the lack of support but for someone like yourself who already has experience with the machines it won't be a problem.
Other thing is people buying cheaper machines & then complaining that they can't cut 12mm stainless with it.
Hi how much did you pay for this if you dont mind me asking Im after one myself cheers.....
Looks like the generic 6040 machine. Weak point on these is the controller but it's not hard to replace it with something a lot more durable.
The main cost is in the mechanical parts on these, not the electronics.
Price wise you should be looking around £1200John S -
The Following User Says Thank You to John S For This Useful Post:
err..no... this is 1320 x 600 = the shipping was $570!
Time will tell as to how durable it is, I spoke with another guy who bought the same, who said that it was great, couldn't buy the parts for the money & may upgrade bits in due course. Ignorance is bliss - so I went for it!
