Default 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!

Don't accuse me of posting off topic!


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.

Wow! And I thought you were just another run-of-the-mill moderators. You actually have skills.
