Review: Cheap CNC Mill

Even though I said I won't do reviews of cheap items again, this time is somewhat special as it falls right into my interest area. Watch as I put a cheap kit CNC mill to the test, and see if it's something worth spending money on.

It came to my attention in the discussion below that the controller board in this mill is counterfeit. For that reason I cannot in good conscience recommend that you get the mill with that controller. However, it is a good platform which they copied, and if you're interested in either buying your own from Planet CNC who makes the originals, or even building your own, visit the links below:
