Pretty impressive especially the detail work and what appears to be a light touch. From what I understand, one still has to manually change burrs and there is a fair amount of maintenance.  I would love to have one, however unless they're $299.99 at Kmart...

That's pretty cool, I think automatic tool changers have been the standard for a few years now, and conveyors to haul away the swarf and chips are the norm too.
What really caught my attention was that no liquid cooling was used.

If someone wanted to get into CNC as a hobby there are several different kits available for the harbor freight 47158, I've got the mill but I probably won't CNC it for a long time if ever.

Lots of info at:
