I haven’t posted anything new to my web site in a while so I thought I would try and get things rolling again by adding some entries into the CNC section.

One of the questions a person might ask when seeing a CNC machine is – “just what can I use this thing for”. Though it seems a little odd, one of the more common applications is building the next CNC machine. In my case, I started with a small CNC mill, moved on to a small CNC lathe, and then built a 3D printer.
