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.  https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000620910567.html?src=google&src=google&albch=shopping&acnt=494-037-6276&isdl=y&slnk=&plac=&mtctp=&albbt=Google_7_shopping&aff_platform=google&aff_short_key=UneMJZVf&&albagn=888888&albcp=1582410664&albag=59754279756&trgt=743612850714&crea=en4000620910567&netw=u&device=c&gclid=CjwKCAiA-P7xBRAvEiwAow-VaQV5fw_GGAY15nfnWm3m3CzHWRiPZGXJrWW8cQPDEUP6iJs-iDMA0hoCxEUQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

 

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