    New chinese cnc machine....looks good for the money!

    Would this be a good machine for small parts, alot cheaper than Roland, Umarq and the over priced MerchantDice Machines:

    Alex,

    Looks good but beware it's in fact a little bit too small for (most) cockpitbuilders.
    The table is 440 x 240 mm but the working size is allways smaller.
    Can't find these dimensions, but assume it's 300 x 200 mm (in the name of the mill).
    Even if the material is within these dimensions, it's always convenient to have some extra space around (for fixing etc.).

    Arrow Re: New chinese cnc machine....looks good for the money!

    Hello Alex

    I don't have any experience myself with this China unit though a friend has a
    unit (3040) running for nearly a year. Bottom line is that the mechanics are OK with a very nice precision,
    but the spindle is not good enough - need to be replaced by for instance a Kress or equivalent.
    So be ready to do some upgrades and small addon like limit switches.
    Still it's a lot of bang for the bucks.

    I believe this is the same product and the link to the company is:
    http://cncdiy.org/ or http://sites.google.com/site/cncdiymachines/
    You'll find a European distributor here: Switzerland
    And as Hessel indicates - look for one of the bigger units.

    Well, buying from China and from a company called CNCDoItYourself you know what you get
    Regards,

    Re: New chinese cnc machine....looks good for the money!

    Hi Alex, I have the slightly larger one and im really pleased with it

    http://www.premiersign.co.uk/proddet...300-200&cat=19
    Colin at Premier sign is really helpful and you also get a licenced copy of Mach3 and Lazy cam.Plus all the clamps etc

    I found out the hard way that you cannot run it from a laptop because the pulse rate from the parallel port isnt stable so allow about 40-50 for an old desktop. I bought a Dell one from ebay for 40 and it runs really well.

    Give me a call if you want to have a look.
    Cheers

    Re: New chinese cnc machine....looks good for the money!

    Hi Steve,

    They look very good for the money, I was just curious about cnc machines as my cnc guy who cut all my cessna panels has a 3 x 1.5 meter cnc table, it's blimmin huge! And was wondering what the hype is all about regarding these home builds and mini cnc machines. I was litterally just curious and has never seen a small desktop cnc before (only videos on you tube), It would be great to see your machine and cockpit if possible one day!

    All the best, Alex

    Re: New chinese cnc machine....looks good for the money!

    I just bought a Chinese 6040z 800 watt spindle. It came with NO paperwork of any kind. No assembly info, nothing. After contacting china, I finally got a download of the configuration. After a week of trying to get it to work, I was frustrated. The document for configure the motor tuning in Mach3 is all wrong, and they don't have any other docs. After Spending another week for painstakingly adjusting the motor tuning and measuring each cut with a caliper, I finally got it tuned (close). They said the stepper motor steps were 640, when in fact its at 8000. There is not homing switches, and the spindle is not controlled by mach3, only a dial on the control box, which is a number between 1 and 400. There's no reference to speed of the spindle. My advice- spend a little more and buy American.

    Re: New chinese cnc machine....looks good for the money!

    I have roughly same experience with a chinese 6040Z

    A few of errors that is written here:

    # The seller doesn't have required and proof of competence to sell such machines.

    # Mach3 supports only Windows XP; which is obsolute version. It shows that he indirectly encourage me to steal a copy of it to run Mach3.

    # The seller wrote misleading information to Amazon, which Amazon says it was a security hole that it passed by filtering system.

    # I could be blind, I am already deaf, because of missing documents; as a result, I can sue him.

    # The seller asked me to tell to DHL to value it 10% (1200 kr), but I bought it for roughly 11700 kr of what I paid because he reveled that he has avoid some important information that he must inform the exact information to get the declaration from custom before he sent it to the buyer and to the Amazon.Com. This action that he asked me to do is strictly unlawful and DHL is just a freight company that does not interfere what the seller and buyer are doing.

    # The seller has done some dubious methods with business...

    # The seller don't want to receive this CNC 6040Z without reason while he promised to receive this item and refund everything.

    And much more that is not necessary to mention to protect me.

    So, when I get back the money, I will buying Step-CNC High-Z S720 in a distributor in Norway.
