Black Moons response to a another post got me itching for a new machine to play with. And since I have a friend that wants to get a small CNC mill so he can see if he wants to pursue this as a curer. The IH CNC looks to be about right for a test machine. Are there any other machines like this out there. It seams that it is not a chine's mill converted to CNC in the states. But more of a purpose built machine. What is he getting with the bed extension option. Is this a good machine can it handle steel as good as it handles aluminum. Or use the 10grand on a down payment on a real milling center.
