View Full Version : Reliable Taig Dealers

I was not sure where to ask this question on this forum so I'm posting it here:

I'm looking into buying Taig Mini-Mill 2019CR-ER. I found these two:

www.cartertools.com and www.lococnc.com - they seem to have good prices and appear legit.

I would like to purcahse a new machine.

Also, I would really appreciate your advice on extra kits that come with it - I want to have everything I need to get going out of the box (i.e table vices, collets e.t.c)

I have HobbyCNC controller (from my DIY machine) that I would like to use with it too. As well as three 285# motors.

I'm somewhat beginner in wood/metal working, so I could use some help.

Thank you.

Both are legit. Can't go wrong with Nick Carter, he is very good about supporting his sales, and has a lot of good information he freely shares. Don't know much about LocoCNC though, sorry.

Go with Nick.....he gives an extra 10% off of his website prices and he has awesome Support

Also another thumbs up for Nick, and I can also say I've had a less than stellar deal with Loco as the communication was seriously lacking. Nick is always there to answer your questions.

Besides me, there's also Andrew Werby (computersculpture.com), who is also always there to answer questions.
