Hello. Co-incidentally, after creating an account here last night, this morning someone on my local Facebook group is offering something which may be of interest:
“Free! An Isel CPM 2018 CNC milling machine. Pick up from Clifton Road, Wimbledon. Disclaimer: this machine is 16 years old and ran on an old CAM software called Galaad. The machine does run, but it needs updating with a new control board to run the servos, CAM software and machine controller software. It will take some work to get it going, but it should work. It also weighs about 45kgs but will fit in a car.”
There’s also a photo of it.
If this appeals, I’m happy to do some investigation of the work required to get it going. I’m happy tinkering around with electronics and who knows - maybe there’s some open-source software available which will drive the thing?
