Looking For a Good CNC machine

Postby Norah » Tue Apr 12, 2016 9:08 pm

Hi good fellas,
I am about to retire and I don’t want to idle around once I go home. I am therefore looking for a CNC machine and software that will keep me busy at home. I am a good programmer and having done my research, I found out that Badog DeltaCAD is the right software for me but I am stuck in choosing the right machine for me. I have a budget of $6500 and I need a hobby CNC :
• To cut 3D relief on wood
• For creating CNC custom inlays
• That has a cutting area of about 950mm x 600mm x 200mm
Before I make any decision, I would love to get some guidance from you guys.
Cheers …

Well come to this forum. I look at the link given above an I wonder why would someone recommend such a machine which you will buy it only to come back here after a month looking for some advise on a better machine Go to www.badogcnc.com or Shapeoko and find yourself a good machine.

With your budget, you can get a good German machine that will perform the job and you can get good technical support.

Why don’t you try building your own machine? You can always get someone in this forum to help you with the building.

I am planning to create a prototype that will help in building a machine with strong capabilities. If you are not in a rush, you can wait for a week then we could work together and help you build a small “beast”. If you are interested in building, then PM me.

I have the pf 1000 p from BZT and it has not registered any issue 4 years down the line. Find one from them.

I am not into building my own because I am not an expert in the motors, electrics, etc.
