DIY-ish CNC Mini Mill
 
Ok, I admit I haven't been brewing much beer...but I thought you guys might like to see what's been "brewing" in my garage. It isn't exactly beer related for the moment, but I can think of a few brewing related machining projects for it already.

After much research on hobby machinist forums and thoroughly reading Daniel Kemp's website, I decided that buying a relatively expensive tool from Harbor Freight was a good idea. I think I was right!

After more than doubling the initial cash outlay plus a few weekends of tinkering, I have a working CNC mill in my garage. It's freaking awesome! Here are the results.



There are a few more videos under my username if you care to surf to YouTube. I'll be happy to share more details or make another video showing a particular detail or process if there's interest.

"Off topic Delete", that's what happened to me with a few past postings by one moderator.
JK.
Now seriously that project is great thanks for sharing.
I looked into a CNC for the Bridgeport, quit once I saw the bill, manual with power feed will have to do.
I see cold winter indoor projects are being created.

Hey, I plan on machining a belt driven mash stirring motor thingie. It's beer related!

Thanks, man. I've had this one going for a few months, but I didn't want to post anything until I was sure it would work!

Very Impressive Yuri! Now that your have the time, you can go back to work on your plutonium upgrade on your brew rig. Don't forget to post picture.

Don't accuse me of posting off topic! :D


This took about 5 minutes to set up and only two takes. The first attempt resulted in lifting the bottle off the table.

No beer was harmed during filming.

VERY Cool...

Now put the cap back on and you REALLY have something.
