Well, as it goes, I am in the market for a small, tabletop milling machine. I basically have decided to purchase either the Model 5000 (5100)
or the Model 5400/5410 Deluxe mill
. So, I would like to know if anyone here owns either or both of these mills (or knows someone who does), and which if the two you/they would recommend. Additionally, I would like to know if anyone thinks that a CNC upgrade for either is worth it, for simple robot chassis/wheel hub/frame work, or is it just a waste of money making a simple thing even simpler than it needs to be?
Oh, and before anone recommends me looking around at other milling machines first, I have, for almost 2 years now, and I am very set on the small/affordable/durable/trustworthy qualities of the sherline series of milling machines, unless of course someone has some extremely super-duper milling machine recommendation that would blow these away in all qualities, then I will be open for a change of mind
Anyway, thanks in advance anyone who responds!
