You also might want to look into a company called Tormach. I just finished an article on their personal CNC. Smaller than a regular CNC, it can still perform many CNC functions. About the only things you are giving up is a little speed and time. They are located in Waunakee, Wis. I think their URL is www.tormach.com. But you might find what you are looking for in the U.S., at a better price, and with local support.
