    Hey everyone. I'm after buying a desktop cnc router/miller for no more than 1k. A bed of up to 600mm would be ok. Any suggestions?

    If your budget is that low you'll be struggling to get one that does 600mm...Unless it's a dog.
    Depends what you expect to make or do with it, nut I'd be looking at 3 times or more that amount for a half decent machine 2nd hand
    If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem !

    I've seen a couple of small (about 300 x 200) ones at around 800. Thought about building one if they came as a kit (like my3d printer)

    If you need only engraving, maybe.

    For milling, even DIY costs ca 3000 (without spindle)
    Mine can do also steel (not very good). It is good for Al and wood. 800 x 1000 x 200
