Recommendations on purchasing Sherline mill
OK, the time has come to buy a small mill. Just for odd stuff. I have something small and expensive I want to machine, and my little Unimat 3 is probably not up to the job.
Looking at the Sherline (yes I know there is other cheaper stuff), I can see various options, and I figure I need at least the one fitted for CNC, but probably not the package where they sell me a computer too, have plenty of those.
There appears to be 3 different "sizes" of the mills, and also there's the CNC options.
Anyone have a recommendation on models/packages and also options.
Please do not suggest an alternative product, Sherline is about 1 mile from here, and yes I will go there and get their recommendation too, but I want unbiased advice.
So any advice on Sherline and/or CNC gotchas, good software, things to avoid would be appreciated.
