Not sure a CMM would make a good machine. Seems to me they ride on air, they have no friction, but also no ability to transfer cutting forces.

I agree completely. But still it's nice, and even its renishaw probe is worth the price.

Probably the best start is purchasing a cheap machine (like that pretty decent $1000 router on ebay) and improving it. When you overgrow it, just build your own machine.

Whoa, whats a touch-probe?
Can that be made into a router? Seriously that thing looks like a tank.

Is this a common thing, to make touch-things into 3D routers? Hellof a Z axis.

The touch probe is what the CMM uses to measure parts...
