Hi and Happy new Year to all!
I am now thinking to buy a hobby CNC machine mainly for milling PCB's (prototyping) and making project box's front panels.
I am completely new to this topic and, although the thought of actually making a machine controlled by arduino first sounds attractive, the idea of all the mechanical gear that has to come together seems daunting. So, I ve decided to buy one instead.
Does anyone have experience on these machines? What features / specs to look for?
How powerful, how big etc?
And most importantly where do you buy from?
There are lots on ebay/ Aliexpress with prices ranging from something like a few 100s euros to literally thousands! And then of course there is the issue of after sales service and support if things go wrong.
Anybody knows an online retailer in Europe?
All suggestions / ideas welcome..
