I would LOVE to get a 3 axis conversion. I think that one guy... (hahaha!) Adam is going to help with the group buy. I don't want to wear him out, though! Maybe I'll get a 3 axis one in the fall, when I get my hot little mittens on $500-$600. I'll definitely email you when I want to do that. China charges $40-45 for group purchases for milling the power section (does that include an UNHOLY amount of drilling holes of various sizes, up to 5/16" diameter? That wouldn't be too bad to pay in that case!) Right? Darn my nested comments.

If I had a CNC, I could do it way cheaper than $40! I can even add vias! I'm doing that in this one. ya! Just turn that little bugger on, go upstairs, eat some cereal, come back, switch out the bit, hit "enter", go eat another bowl of cereal (raisin bran), etc... Something would probably catch on fire, but that would be awesome.
