CNC Mill for Antweights? Recommendations?

Post by EddieJ » Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:22 am

I'm probably going to be milling a load of auminium parts for my new antweight bot :D And it will be more fun to get a CNC and do it myself
For my company we have 5 3D printers of various flavours, but I'm totally new to CNC machines.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a small but accurate CNC which can deal with alu and possibly other metal (cooling makes things expensive i hear)

Budget under £2k would be ideal.
I am currently looking at this one.

Trying not to take Antweights too seriously. I think I'm failing.

Thanks for the tip! I had a look, but the product info seems to suggest it is not for metals. :(
