    Hi
    I am trying to build a cnc machine for milling aluminium, steel and titanium. The components I would like to build would be for bicycle frames. Similar to the attached pictures.
    Any advice on the type of cnc machine I should go for and the size of the stepper motors I should use

    Thanks

    Hi
    Steel, Titanium... i would suggest either a used Bridgeport (or the like) , convertet to cnc in the 1Ton+ region or if you really want to build a FS3MG by "Nucky" (search german cnc boards).
    Anyway, look out for a real heavy machine ... nothing like the hobbyist machines.
    Just my opinion
