Hey all
Been wanted to locate a cnc router to build general aluminum, abs, and wood projects.
Any ideas of what would be best for my size I need. 2'x4'x 6 to 8" Z axis.
I have saved up some money to get my cad software and machine hope to be running mach 3.
Shot me some ideas or companies to look at as i am a seriuos buyer
If you build CNC Routers shoot me a message and lets talk.
Thanks for your help

Hello Ronnie,
That looks pretty interesting especially for the price...

Has anyone had any experience with
Made in china.com

Cnc, China cnc, cnc Manufacturers, China cnc catalog (http://www.made-in-china.com/productdirectory.do?subaction=hunt&style=b&mode=and&code=0&comProvince=nolimit&order=0&isOpenCorrection=1&word=cnc)

I would like to contact them but wanted opinions on previous experience anyone might have had with them.

With its long unsupported round rails, that machine doesn't look rigid enough for cutting aluminum. I'd think even hard woods and plastics would be problematic.

I searched for a long time before I decided on the DWC. For the price its great. Closet thing in size was the shopbot at about 1/3 more. As for the rails deflecting, I have not noticed any and I have been using a mix of woods. As with any machine, let the cutter do the work and have correct speeds for what you are cutting and all should be well.
