Bosco Figures (now CNC and 3D printing)
I’ll check into that 3 in 1 Machine. I like modular, upgradable, multi-purpose machines, I always liked (but never owned) the old Shop Smith Wood machines as a kid.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am trying to replace my 3 in 1 lathe (large, mill, drill press) with a full CNC machine but it is a lot of money, need to make a plan to earn it back before committing.
To machine metal takes a lot of mass for stability, my current one is about 600 pounds and way too light. Some guys have filled the columns on machines like mine with concrete to get more mass but mine is way underpowered at 1/2 horsepower total.
This one has 2 horsepower on each of 2 spindles along with full VFD (variable speed drive) and CNC and weighs in at over 1200 pounds.
I must keep developing my ideas for model railroad parts...
Solemnity and profundity are sublime in inequity.

This is a 3-in-1 unit that does 3d printing, laser cutting/engraving and CNC routing/carving based on which head is mounted. So far I've just done some test 3D prints and laser engraving; no CNC yet. I need to learn some software to create stuff like this. Until then I'm relying on free files that can be found with STLfinder.
