I know it has been asked before but machines change so I thought it would be ok to ask again.

I have been saving up for a Hammer C3 and will be ready in time for the Oct show. But would I be better off going for separates?

If so, what are your thoughts? I am a hobbiest, but want a machine /s that will not only last but are accurate and do not require an engineering degree to keep them that way. I have a 20’ x 12’ workroom, just being built.

Thanks for any advice given

if I am better off with seperates, which do you reconmend for someone in the UK?

Very keen on a stopsaw if I go this route

How have things progressed in the last 148 days? Which tools did you get?

Hi Mark,

Unfortunatley I put the money into stocks, while I sorted the Workroom out and ….

Yep they dived faster tahn a titanium sub.

So ….

back to saving.

I ahve ‘almost’ decisded on the Hammer, I saw it in action at W8 and it is a beast, so more than I will need, thus very future proof.

I will update the post as I move forward.

THe Workroom is now finished and I am VERY happy with it, but it is very messy as I have not yet finished tiding up after the move.
