I've recently purchased a Milltronics ML-14 CNC lathe and an MB20 CNC mill from a private party.
I confess to being a noob, I own (and use) a Bridgeport mill and a Jet Lathe, but I am not a professional machinist.
My question is related to costs and repping structure. I've been given a rough verbal of $3,500 per machine for initial setup (1/2 day each) and what appears to be 8-12 hours of training. I am nor ragging on the repp - but, In my real life I am a product design consultant and this appears a princely sum. Am I out of line to question this? (No I haven't bought a machine from them).
Are there alternatives? - or should I just shut-it and accept it. As I will likely need support in the future.
Thanks in advance.
