View Full Version : Newbie, please help me

I would like to build a small machine, that I can controll from my computer, to make front panels.
Panels would be in aluminium and not bigger then 7"x7".

Does someone sell kits for such a thing?

What am I looking for? Words like fadal, mini mill, haas, lathe doesn't mean anything to me :confused:

Any newbie pointers would be great.
Oh, im in Europe (if it matters).

Hi Frax,

There is more then enough information and help on this site for you to build a CNC mill your self. What is always necessary is that you decide what the parameters are in regards to size, accuracy and your budget. Go to the Forums, scroll down (about ½ way) and look for "Opensource CNC Design Center " and you will find a wealth of useful information that a bunch of people have taken the time to develop just for people like you, that want to build but need help in getting started. Spend some time reading and it will all start to come together.
