    I appreciate everyone's comments here.
    The reason for this foray is for my own education in CAD/CAM
    I ended up ordering one from China, a 3040Z-DQ
    Under US$800 including shipping
    Small but very sturdy machine
    XYZ = 390mm x 280mm x 55mm
    but the bed is open on both ends so I can flip something around if I have to and machine something in more than one pass
    Ball screw XYZ drive units
    500W air cooled spindle
    capable of 4 axis if needed

    The #1 function will be 2.5D aluminum and engraving anodized aluminum.
    But hardwood speaker baffles are also planned
    (am going to try and stay away from mdf because of the dust)

    You will see some audio-related projects this year!
