My new CNC milling machine

Lawton, we have suppliers who offer hobby milling machines either conventionally or with CNC (e.g. Wabeco). In most cases, a suitable control system is also available. However, I don't know what the market is like in your country.
Then, of course, there is the possibility of converting a conventional machine to CNC yourself. You can often find more information about this in internet forums.
My machine is equipped with an Estelcam control. This also includes software with which the programmes can be generated. The operation is relatively simple, so that even a layman can quickly achieve useful results. Control and software are also available in foreign language versions.
