One of the wife’s uncles is a 40+ goldsmith and jeweler. He (and the other uncle) may be closing down the family business for retirement in the next while. Now the goldsmith will probably be going into doing his own thing in the next year. I am thinking of putting a small CNC router with a removeable rotary together. Mostly to make wax blanks for castings and maybe super light carving of wood or light metals.
Now the bigger Diy 3 axis I am more or less up to speed on. It’s the smaller, need 6"x6" I know nothing about. I am hoping for suggestions or insights, especially about a small 4 axis. I want to aim low on the price as I don’t know how viable and needed it is.
Software is covered. And would probably go mach3 or mach4. Though I’m open on Mach.
