So I joined about 4 years ago, I think I was briefly interested in a home-build cnc machine.

I'm back today because I'm thinking of getting a 6040 cnc router. The price is very attractive at 1000. I am going to be selling arcade cabinets soon and my own machine would let me route my own control panels in MDF, unfortunately the 6040 isn't large enough to cut the perimeter of the larger panels so I'd have to saw them to size first.

The above use probably doesn't justify my own machine, but I'm excited about the possibilities for cutting other components in plastic and aluminium. I have a lot of designs for new joysticks :)

Even if I don't get my own machine, I might find people on here that offer cutting services?
