Some of ya’ll may remember I did a bunch of work on a friend’s Platform CNC a year or two ago. It’s a 30"x48" cut-size machine. All-metal. Uses a full-size router for the spindle or you can mount CNC spindles to the Z axis. I’ve seen the thing operate and it chews through wood like you’d expect an all-metal commercial machine to.
My friend is upgrading to a 5’x12’ CNC router. He’s just now setting it up. Once he has it up and running, he’ll be selling the smaller machine.
The price he’s asking is reasonable for the machine and is for a fully running machine. I trust the electronics… I installed them It’s not a small amount ~$2500. The Platform CNC is about $4k to buy/build new.
I guess my problem is, I wasn’t looking at getting/building another CNC. I wish my MPCNC was a bit larger, but I’ve learned to live with it. I could also use the money on a Mill or metal Lathe.
First world problems… right?
