What is a good source of 3D models suitable for 3D machining .... I don't mind paying a little for these models !

My vote goes to Vectric’s Vector Art 3d (Design & Make)

We don't have Aspire, so we asked them if they could modify an existing model (Image Number: 58030 (Oak Branch 3)) ... l&ID=58030

by joining it together into a longer 'run', we gave them the dimensions we needed and they did the modifications sent us the model and only charged the cost of the original published model. Fantastic service!.

Sincerely and in good faith

Really depends what you are looking for if it is something specific then you can get a custom model made, there are people on the forum that do that sort of thing, Michael M is one of them that gets a lot of recommendations.
If it's just stock models then Design & Make (part of Vectric) have some good models & also do projects which contain several models with a common theme. They have a couple of free projects as well so easy to get started.
There is also the models that came with the software, have you sat & looked through all of those :lol: :lol: :lol:

There are a lot on Ebay, for as little as $1-$2.
