I'm sure this has been done to death before. I've checked the archives and found some information, most of it quite old.
Any opinions on using a ShopBot to machine connector openings in small polycarbonate / ABS / PVC enclosures?
In particular I'm looking at the Buddy:Yeah the picture detracts from the product and I can't find much practical or specs info on the website either. I'm awaiting reply to a request for info email I have sent to them.
While I wouldn't expect this level of machine to be anything near as robust as a cast iron machine its price is significantly lower. I'd imagine it might need a little coaxing and a few swarf shields etc added.
I've seen the results that others have achieved in timber and most owners seem satisfied, but I cannot find any info on anyone machining polycarbonate / ABS etc. Would it handle low volume work of this nature? Anyone?
