Pocket NC - desktop 5 axis machine

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1090944145/pocket-nc-the-first-5-axis-cnc-mill-for-your-deskt

Seems to be less vapourware than many 3d printers at the same development point and they are limiting their sales to achievable levels.

There are some concerns about their rotary axis but still for the price and size, can't argue too hard

DUDE im loving this revolution of desktop machinery.

Soon there will be no need to buy parts for robots overseas paying almost as much for postage as the part and not to mention the parts would be allot cheaper making them yourself.

They are planning on selling them commercially in 2016 which is good.

Been following this project for around 12 months now, its nice to see that they have limited themselves to sensible numbers and actually produce a working product.

Would be an awesome rig for doing Antweight and Beetleweight parts Razz
