  • Vertical CNC Mill

    nyone know where to find a used CNC knee mill for about 10,000? Tough to do but though i would throw it out there. My buddy is looking for one and i said i would try to help.

    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,
