Chasing around the idea of getting a used VMC. Certainly plenty to
chose from out there.
Other than the obvious wear, tear and running time, its the controls
that worry me... which is better, what "options" does it have, what to
look out for or stay away from. I know I would not want to go back in
time such that one would have to wrestle code into the control... even
floppies are outdated.
Perhaps there is a year / period when all of the controls "came
around" to USB, Hardrives and Lan connections.
I know it is a big question, and I bet everyone loves what they have
and know what they love. But, any guidance is better than no guidance
at all !
Maybe someone could advise: this brand after 19xx, or that brand after
19xx, and I know it will still come down to the options purchased at
that time and upgrade possibilities that exist...... See.... really
What kind of work do you want to do on it?
Nothing out of the ordinary. Aluminum parts, ability to do mild steel,
want an enclosure... short production runs for now, prototyping. Its
the work areas of the 20"ish x 16"ish that are appealing.
