  • CNC Mogul

    Anyone know anything about, or have any experience with these CNC machines?

    CNC Mogul

    Price is attractive for a CNC, but is it a case of "you get what you pay for?"

    Doesn't look very stiff. Doesn't mention the motors used for movement, or for the spindle. Looks good if you're cutting foam...

      +1. Useful CNCs use at least 2HP 1/2" collet routers.

        A lack of any useful information on that site, much less a video or even a picture of an entire assembly at work - unless those are buried somewhere.

        CNC in the garage is the future of woodworking, but not with this assembly.

        I went to a trade show last fall, and there were several small CNC tables set up cutting metal, wood, plastic etc. All of them had more robust electronics than what is pictured or implied in this particular product. They also start at $4,000 and go up from there. Where the cost comes in is the quality and resolution of the motors and drives. In industry, a single drive will cost more than an entire turnkey hobbyist CNC table but they will also run 24/7/365 for ten years. That level of robustness is not really needed to build 1/2 dozen speaker cabinets every summer
        Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

          Drives are also commonly called amps, before the correctional goon squad gets excited.

            So JR, is your opinion that this would be OK for the garage hobbyist?

              Without seeing it assembled, and knowing more about the steppers used I have to say no. I think if you are into engraving signs, it is probably more than adequate but if you are looking at cutting 3/4" MDF with it maybe not so much. From the limited pictures, it looks like the XY motors are pretty small.

                  There's a youtube link at the upper right corner, but all the videos are of engraving or sharpie drawings, no cuts, which is telling.

                    Re: CNC Mogul

                    A friend pointed me to this really great article about CNC milling. It's mostly as a counterpoint to 3d printing but it covers a lot of useful info about CNC mills and then at the end suggests a list of hobby mills along with their prices. So if you're interested this might be a good article to check out...
