This is some of my experience with the Tormach CNC Milling Machine. I find it to be an excellent machine for the price. It does not compete with a production oriented VMC, but then again, it's 1/4 the price of a low end VMC.
These are some of the parts that I've machined. Most of the CAM was created using the HSMexpress plugin for Solidworks. HSMexpress is an amazing tool considering that it's free for 2.5 axis. My purchase of large CNC happened after I learned that HSMworks (which I had learned to use, but cost $10,000 per license) was releasing a free version called HSMexpress which was limited to 2.5 axis.
