    Can anybody help with the size of the triac, first CNC and after many days sat on google and a stiff neck I have decided I want this model.

    Now I'm limited in space to get this machine in my garage, I have a concrete fence down 1 side then the house. The gap is only 790mm but only for a few inch then opens up a good few ft at the end if you get my meaning, now is it possible to get this machine through this space.

    Failing this model what would be a good CNC mill to buy that would fit down this space, has said googled for many days. Would be machining alloy and hopefully titanium.

    Thanks

    How can anyone tell you that when you haven't specified a particular machine. Denford triacs come in few forms so unless you know exactly the model few can accurately answer. Those that have Triacs could answer but there model spec may be differant to what you "May" end up buying.!
    i2i as good experience with these machines but obviously you can't tell him which model so again he probably can't answer your question accurately.

    Personally I would find a machine you like get intouch and get them to accurately measure it in several places. Also at worst case if you find it doesn't fit then you can always strip it down and take inside.! This is common practice with mills and it doesn't hurt to give the machine a good clean from the start and get to know it intimately.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the input, but did not no the triacs came in many sizes. Thought the enclosed ones was just 1 size fits all, but these don't seem to come up very offten so finding 1 then asking sizes will take time. In which the machine could well get sold, so if people who have 1 state the size and model then this would mean I no which to look out for.

    They probably don't come in many sizes and I didn't say size I said Many forms Ie: Enclosed or not enclosed etc and while I don't have much experience with them what I said still remians true. If you have a particular machine in mind then just go measure it or have the seller measure it.? To be honest I don't see the problem here.? . . . . In Worst case strip it down.!
