    Ohh sorry I forgot to remind you that buying a chinese machine is like a gamble, but if you are capable of fixing / modifiying it then I guess it`s all right, this the 8 shipment of machines in the shop, as you can see I really dont care about the warranty hehehe, right out in the box I cut everything I dont need, modify the electrical system and all the culprits on the chinese machines, it`s cheap but risky to those who dont want to modify

    There are machines and machines.....you can't pass a judgment on all from just one bad machine from any source........you also mainly get what you pay for.

    Anyone who buys a machine knowing it has to be modified to make it work is a fool with money to burn.......at the same time, some people expect a cheap priced machine to perform like a thoroughbred.

    The Chinese are experts at pricing their products down to a price because they know that's what drives their customers........quality is a late comer to the party......but even then you couldn't build a machine to the same design as a Chinese one for the price.

    Aluminum 0.5-0.8mm depth cut on a 1/4 shank 2 flute carbide bit (for wood) guaranteed, 4000 FRO, doubled the speed on your current set-up, built in pump for coolant (Metal cutting constant temperature), I really envy this machine in the shop, been saving money to buy my own like this, (sold my 2 motorcycles already) more stronger because the table itself is the one moving (X,Y), ordered mine for just $1100, less maintenance on the ball screws because it`s hidden underneath, cuts aluminum like a piece of cake, steel? no problem (0.4mm) shipping cost a bit higher because it`s a 70Kg. machine. I cant wait to have my own
    That machine looks to have most of the drawbacks of both a router and a mill with few of the benefits. It's got the short Y and fairly short X and cantilevered design of a mill, along with the limited Z clearance and light aluminum build of a router.

    Well it`s overall design beats our 6040 and 6090 units in terms of Z height, rigidity on the table, faster FRO, and most specially the coolant recirculator bin built in on the unit itself, the material being cut is cold from start to finish (No metal expansion) the only advantage on the 6040 is the wider and larger table, for metal cutting / molding / engraving this thing kicks ass, for the price, it increased our production rate on aluminum / steel products. no need to worry about the ball screws catching saw dusts and metal chips and getting stuck. you can put grease as a lubricant on the ball screws to maintain it`s optimum lubrication, you do that on a 6040 and you`ll get a stuck mechanism in the middle of the program code and will result to a broken tool bit or a damaged work piece due to offsetting while the CNC is moving.

    CNC 6040 (2000 FRO) = $1400
    This unit (4000 FRO) = $1100

    Hmmmm.....a cantilevered column mill design.....what will they think of next.

    I can't see that machine cutting steel to any degree with a water cooled spindle and an extruded aluminium table too.....definitely not for steel.

    I think the design would work better if there was a second fixed/main column and the short Z axis column turned 90 degrees between the two columns.....

    LOL.....then you would have a cantilevered column moving table router but with the table moving in 2 directions......with a different spindle I think that would mill steel.

    Yep I think a 12K RPM spindle would allow me to use HSS multi flute bits, the structure itself had thick steel reinforcements inside that`s why it weighed more than our 6040 even though it`s only a 3020 table.

    There`s an additional feature on this unit, it can function like a manual mill (without codes) just push button arrows (XYZ) without using any computer, kinda cool feature if you just wanna reface something or a quick touch up on any machined product
