Re: Which Mini CNC mill #mill

Yes but don’t expect anything fantastic for the price. These do not have a single piece of industrial grade componentry on them, and rely of the fact most people are happy to continually fiddle with them.

I purchased a significantly more expensive and upgraded version compared to this, and it’s still a piece of crap out of the box.

After a lot of re-engineering the unit, it now makes a half decent pcb, but it needs a good amount of finessing to keep it consistent.

Wow. I can’t believe how cheap that stuff is!

Thank you for your information. I understand what you mean. I have done on 3d printer to put it together. There were some missing parts. Can you tell me more about the good spindle?  I found the other one 4018 but it doesn't come with the power supply, controller board, and stepping motor.


I am not sure if it is worth to buy CNC4018 and order separate parts like controller board, spindle, stepping motors to run it.
