Pocket NC 5 axis mill

Anyone have experience with the Pocket NC 5 axis cnc Desktop mill?Pocket NC 5 Axis mill

I am looking for an affordable 5 axis CNC setup. My CNC converted 3axis Grizzly Mill is outdated and am looking forward in building my own props for experiment. 3 axis takes alot of work but doable.

I don‘t know about this machine. On this site here How to get a good impeller (for jet propulsion) - #16 by SoEFoil - Propulsion System (Motor, Gears) - FOIL.zone (-> http://www.modeljetboat.com/jetboat/jetboat.htm) the author made quite nice impellers with only an added 4th axis.

I have a 4th axis table ready to convert, but i am in the market for a more modern setup.

Thanks for the input

I looked at Pocket NC but its pricy and really small, check out this machine!

I have seen that and also the smaller brother HY3040.
Also read mixed reviews. Most said no instructions.
Others say the XY are kinda soft for hard metal.

Looking for something to do stainless.

ya, the 3040 has their first design, undersized motor, machine frame, parallel port and few other things, the 6040 is several upgrades but Stainless is tough stuff and likely need something more american made :slight_smile: Good luck and post what you find here please, I would like to see other options there are.
