The RCM&E CNC range

If you're looking for a good trad' build project then why not consider one of the designs from the growing range of CNC kits from Sarik Hobbies.

A CNC pack contains all the CNC and laser-cut items that remove the hard work from a project – ribs, formers and all the other parts aside from sheet and strip. With additional wood packs available for many models, you have everthing you need to start a project.
