Rumor has it that the way to go about getting a deal on a CNC mill is to find one that is mechanically sound, but whose controller is no longer economical to repair. You then take this beastie and covert it to run Mach 3 on a PC, with a parallel breakout board and potentially some Gecko drives. The twist is that you'll have to be willing to live with that particular controller solution and facile enough with a PC to make it work.

Best,
