Been practicing cad for a while know and would love to make these 2 small machines, but yeah, still school.
Allready have 3 new Kuroda spindles
Kuroda preloaded c3 10/2 screws
Hiwin HG15 slides
Nsk 25mm spindle
Maxon 350 watt motor (max. 25 krpm) + drive
Epoxy base with Mic-6 Inserts
Kurodapreloaded c3 10/2 screws
Hiwin HG15 slides
Dunhamtools headstock spindle
Nema 34 bldc
Granite devices drive
Epoxy base with cast iron inserts
Since i would like to make a rc car for myself first idea was to buy a taig or something the same. after research it`s compromise on comprise.
Then i was looking at the minitech machines, nice, but the price.
(don`t thinks a hobbiest ike me doesn`t need caged screws and block)
Total price for those 2 is the same as 1 minimill 3, mwuhahahhhaaa!!
In my opinion the concept are suited for the application i need and not possible with a retro fit.
Cann you give me some feedback.

Those are rather nice looking. Though I do wonder a bit about that taper towards the base on each, what is the purpose?
I'd imagine you're read the EG Thread already, do you have any experience working with EG yet? I ask because if these become reality it'll be interesting to hear in English someone's experience with the material. So far minus a few parts I've not seen many hobbyist use EG, there's the group in Germany who made an outstanding looking machine but that's the only account apart from a few commercial ventures.
Do you have access to a machine shop or any experience running machines? The nice thing about EG is you can mill most of the important surfaces then just pour the EG around it, but you still have to mill the important surfaces correctly.
Anyways I hope you get to start ordering stuff soon, would love to see these two become more then cad drawings (I'd start with the lathe, there's a lot of milling work that can be done on the lathe and it'll help you complete the mill)
