Our first CNC arrived this week. It is made by Zen Tool Works and is quite small with it's 7" x 7" work area. This device is supposed to be excellent for making circuit boards and enclosures for my electronics.
We will also try and make some fun wood, metal, stone and acrylic items for the digital homesteader. At the moment we only have a spindle option for cutting with metal bits, but the unit can be used with lasers or 3D extruders. The next few days will be dedicated to building the kit and getting a old desktop PC running linuxcnc (EMC2) for controlling the CNC.
