Im a jumping into the venture of small scale carbon bike fabrication. Immediately I realized the cost of tooling and supplies was going to be a very large investment. Too cut cost down a bit, I invested some one in a couple of 3d printers to produce model, in which to cast for negative molds. Right now im stuck on wither its a good idea to invest in a lathe and milling machine. So that I wouldn't have to depend on a outside source for tooling. I need a various plug fittings, made for press fitting on frame im making. Plugs no bigger then a 4-5in diameter, and 4-5in height made from aluminum. Now would it make sense too just invest in these tools for my self? Or too just source the work out? I've been quoted up $500 for a group of 5 plugs, but there is the chance i might need more, or different sizes. Because of the nature of the work ill be doing this is the machine i was looking into. I choose this model for its variable speed, making work a little easier for me. And the work envelope looks to be prefect for what i will be doing. I was very intrested in grizzly G0752 Do you think it would suffice? Or should i just be looking else where?
