I've been checking out some of those machines/sites. Incredibly expensive and overkill for what I want to do? One good thing though - I just found out that there's a big machinist trade show just down the road from me called Eastec which opens tomorrow. Talk about good timing! There seems to be thousands of manufacturers and vendors there. Does anyone have suggestions on who I should check out for small CNC surface grinders and software to run them?

Like we have said CNC grinding is NOT cheap. Just extremely accurate if done correctly. And tiny lightweight grinders HAVE their problems.,lack of mass and dampning and rigidity. Don't forget the grinding cam Package as well.

Now you know why the old copy/plate  grinders that used templates stayed around so long. (;-)
