I have been considering buying one for some time now, it would only be for hobby use to make things like PCB’s and small mechanical things like gear boxes, I would also like to be able to mill aluminum and cut sheets of aluminum on occasion. I have been looking at 2 types of machine the first one being a Chinese 3020 or 3025. The only suppliers I know of are eBay sellers and I have concerns of lack of after sales support, condition of machine after I receive it from shopping and the overall quality. I have also been looking at the ZEN 12x12 F8 which looks to have grater after sale support and I suspect the build quality may also be better and less hit or miss.
Dose anyone have a opinion on them or any other suggestions? Keeping in mind that the maximum I want to spend is 1300 AUD for the machine and control gear not including the PC.
