We have been offered a 1000 x 750 OxCNC machine. It originally cost over £1000, Its for sale for £800, and the seller is willing to knock £50 off to make the total £750 if the Hackspace buys it.
This has a much larger and beefier frame than the shapeoko2 and should be able to cut wood and plastic easily, aluminium fairly easily, and steel very slowly.
- Frame size 1000mm X 750mm
- Cut size x = 561mm y = 740mm z = 60mm

Location wise, this could fit where the current CNC table is, and not take up massively more room.
Its bed is big enough that we can use it to build a few things that would be useful for the space:
- Stools - https://openbuilds.com/projects/cncstool.65/
- Nice wooden boxes that fit exactly in a member shelf
- MOAR CLOCKS
- Hanging brackets for tools
- Stackable member's storage - https://aaronjibbotson.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/gobox-modular-storage-system/
