    Default how much are EDM supposed to cost?

    I am in Taiwan by the way, just so you know...

    I was walking around a used machine tool dealer today. They have all kinds of machines in it, pretty much all butted up against each other. I mean lathes, mills, compressors, presses, etc.

    I saw an EDM machine, and asked the price and he told me it was around 50,000 NTD or around 1500 dollars. It's a manual EDM machine.

    Is that about right for a used EDM?

    I never really did EDM before so I can't say I know much about it as I was primarily looking for Bridgeport type milling machines and lathes.

    Manual edm machines are sort of like shapers; useful but not much used in todays shops. Yeah, price sounds like it could be right, depending on brand names.

    That sounds like the price for a portable tap buster.

    It definitely was not a portable tap burner. It is a full sized EDM machine with a big cabinet thing next to it (which I think is the control box/generator or something).

    The dealer said he has another much larger CNC EDM that he said cost 1 million NTD (around 30,000 dollars).

    BTW I didn't know what it was at first because it looks like a milling machine with a big open top box over the table.

    You can buy a new machine for around USD15,000.00 from Industrial EDMs | OSCARMAX Professional EDM Company, Manufacturer they are in Taichung.

    I`m guessing not much 3R tooling in that package!
