Help on selling a Mach 3 CNC
« on: June 10, 2013, 11:58:47 AM »
Hi eveyone!

I have Mach 3 CNC for sale.  It comes with an HP laptop that used Art cam software.   This appears to be the brains of the CNC.  There is a Honeywell name on the router part.  I am trying to sell it and need to find out how much they generally go for.

I would appreciate your advice, thanks in advance

Post a few pictures of the router, I'm sure someone will recognize it.

I am trying to sell this machine.  It is mach 3 and runs on art cam software.  It was used to make violins and then to carve wood for furniture.  I am selling it and am trying to price it.  It comes with the HP laptop.  

Any ideas anyone?  Your help is appreciated, thanks!

OK - as this is not your pride and joy but a simple cold hard cash question...

First off it looks home brew to me - of course I could be wrong.

Round motors - not good - unsupported round rails where diameter looks small for length - not good - screw supported by motor - not good - screw very small diameter for length - not good - "regular" wood router for spindle - nothing special - thin looking bent steel work - not good. All in all (IMHO) a pretty good example of how NOT to build a router.

Does it work? - what sort of speeds and accel does it hold - accuracy/repeatability/backlash? - my guess would be none of them particularly good - maybe you can say different but it's notable that you haven't said anything about it working, if I was a potential buyer (I'm most definitely not BTW) I'd assume the worst.

That said - the bay's awash with people paying way over the odds so you may get lucky and if you do I think you'll be looking at (low) hundreds but only IF IT WORKS.

Just my honest view - others (190 odd of them so far) may completely disagree - but they don't seem to be jumping in making offers.

Cheers

Ian
