I bet it's true, I can only do 10% of the crazy expensive things being married.
Heck the wife evaporates what I had when being single this my extra pocket money.

Yuri, I have read most all of your projects on here and you never cease to impress.

I want to be Yuri when I grow up.

Sorry, I'm a purist. The cubes must be independent and free to float.

Still jealous. I've been eyeing a little 1-1/2 HP hobby knee mill but unfortunately it's a ways down on my list of toys.

Au contraire. However, I do have the coolest wife ever. I can't believe she puts up with me.

Beautiful! strange enough Ive been on break from homebrewing for the same reason (actually due to limited space my cnc machine is blocking the entrance to the closet containing my brewing supplies). I will eventually post pics/videos of mine in a separate thread, but for now can you share the technical specs on your machine? I assume you used steppers rather than servos so full-step/half-step/micro-step, stepper motor torque and full steps per revolution, x/y/z travel limits, and more about the software. I see you're using mach3 for the controller but what about CAD and CAM processor I havent been able to find ones I like so im curious what you're using.

I really want to make one of those... if only I had the space and an extra 1200 bucks or so.
Are you on CNCzone.com? Lots of good stuff going on over there.

What kind of tolerances can you hold with that. I've always been tempted by those milling machines, and little lathes, but I'm a little suspicious of anything HF sells (not to say I don't buy it, I just have low expectations).

I don't think I've ever seen beer opening tooling before, well done! I'm glad you didn't try to cut it off with an end mill... though that would be cool, just run it around the rim of the bottle about 0.010 from the glass... but that's just asking for a mess.

Any plans on mounting a plasma cutter to it?

+1 to more detail!

I'm looking at selling my Porper cue lathe to finance a machining lathe and an end mill. For some stupid reason a Proper lathe is worth $2k+ used, and I've been looking at the Grizzly mills for around $1k - A coworker has one and likes it.

I'm VERY interested in converting the mill immediately to CNC, but have done none of the research to see what that would cost yet.

I vote for a build thread! If not on HBT I'd love to have a link to a build thread somewhere else!

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!
