Don't forget what Mr Taxman is going to hit you with once they land here plus the shipping of course and if there is a problem you have to deal with someone very far away - just saying look at all the hidden costs as well :-)

I have orderd from them before and it is not that bad still a lot cheaper than most of the other guys. I must just find a cheap suplier for linear shaft and bearings, I want to go away from the wheels on the machine. Hey can you help with the setup of the A axis motor on the X axis I can get it to turn. I need a step by step instruction on how to do this on mach3.

Go on youtube and search Mach tutorials also go here http://www.youtube.com/user/anajonesr?feature=watch for excellent videos on setting up the electronics of your cnc. I personally learn better by seeing so it helped my build my second control box. Here is another site for cnc accesories http://www.cnc-step.co.za/ also pm me if you need more info.

Ok that's good.

Paul there is no pic library.

I usually save any picture of interest or if I can't find it , ask in a appropriate thread if someone recalls where I could find the resource.
