    It's more than Free time Thou isn't it.? There's the machinery and the experience to factor into the equation and not every one as these to fall upon.
    But I agree it's very do-able and should seriously considered if they have the skills and tools, every thing they need to know is here.!!

    Yep I know you didn't and wasn't for one minute suggesting you did. I also know and appreciate just how much time and thought went into that machine and putting a price on that would be hard and expensive.!

    I guess its all to do will managing expectations, like I keep telling my Dad .. you get what you pay for, however .. I did strike lucky with my Blackcat as it was cheap and does everything I have ever asked of it, downside is the controller software which is shit.. besides that I'm still happy :)

    I think Blackcat CNC machines are sourced from Redsail in China (rebadged?)...so your thoughts/experience augment what I was saying about Redsail turning out machines that are somewhat better than the typical Chinese stuff that abound.

    Searching for Redsail, it looks like their website seems to have gone backwards unless I'm looking in the wrong place ?

    not sure what you mean by backwards, but this is their website...

    Cheap Desktop CNC routers milling machine manufacturers from Redsail

    they don't do themselves a lot of favours on product information/photos etc (they clearly haven't sussed what 'specification junkies' most CNC buyers are!), but i can say they are very responsive to emails, provide good support...and that their RS-3020 moving table product is exceptionally well made....


    (the above is rs-3020 version that I have, which seems to have much longer stepper motors than their model showing on alibaba....

    2013 new design desktop cnc router machine RS-3020 for aluminum, View desktop cnc router machine, Redsail Product Details from Jinan Redsail Tech Co., Ltd. on Alibaba.com


    Since the thread title is about a 6040 machine, here's their associated product...

    http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/96...r_milling.html

    They don't show it in their literature, but the control box innards are a step apart from the usual Chinese control boxes...



    well loomed, 3 x m542 type stepper drivers (moons sr4's I think - http://www.moonsindustries.com/Produ...t_E/SR4_drive/ ) *not* a nasty yoocnc all in one driver board etc.
