Marchant dice cnc router with kress 800 milling spindle. Machine in photo is taken from the marchant dice website, my machine is very similer I can supply photos on request.
This kit includeds the machine, stepper motors, drivers, and power supply and a variety of collets of all it needs to complete is a pc with a parallel port and a copy of mach3 or linux cnc (Free)
I think this router is a good choice for milling foam and balsa wood, milling out tracks for pcbs and also pick and place projects anything much heavier than that and the machine becomes less accurate so bear that in mind. For learning cnc on, I think its worth the money but don't be under the illusion you will be able to hog out hard wood or aluminium.
Im looking for £1200 it has had light use maybe 24hrs running and cost over £2000
