Unboxing Our Biggest Summer 2019 Member Giveback Item
Each month we purchase equipment and supplies/consumables that our members request. This summer we saved several month’s worth of funds and bought something big! It is a benchtop mill. It will let us machine metal, including steel. As purchased it is a manual mill – similar to a drill press. We have a donated digital readout system that we’re hoping to install so we can do very accurate machining. Long term we plan to upgrade it to CNC (Computer Numeric Control) so it can machine parts that were drawn in a CAD program. The photos below show the unboxing – a future blog post will cover installation and use.
