    Default Rockford VMC CNC milling machine

    I just bought a Rockford VMC 3000 CNC mill and can't find any information on the company or the Machine itself. I have seen pictures online of Rockford 1000 VMC but no information on the company or the machines. It is a small machine intended for educational purposes. It was made in 1998. Does anybody have information on the company, the machine itself or the software?

    Contact these guys, they build and rebuild machines in Rockford IL and they may know.

    ask for Joe Goral and tell him I gave you the lead.

    Rockford is the brand. Nothing to do with Rockford Illinois.

    I appreciate the help. Just clarifying that Rockford was the brand.

    Thanks

    Pictures. Always a big help in trying to identify a machine.

    And clear, not shaky. If they come in too small (sometimes happens when attaching) try again with a link to a hosting service.

    Presumably Chinese iron with steppers? Not for this forum, if that's the case...
