It's beautiful.

I don't even know how to use it, but I could make some frackin' stuff with that.

Plus, and I have to say this is a factor, if we had one, we'd be even more "this shizzle" as a space than we are now.

CNC is awesome, but it requires an understanding of the basic underlying concepts, which are best learned on a good old fashioned manual mill.


Well said. Jumping into a CNC without any "hands on" Mill/Lathe Theory is a lot life learning to scuba dive before learning to swim. A manual Vertical with 2-Axis is easier to find in our price range. Then there's the Collets and End-mill Bits, vises, flywheel cutters, etc... not cheap stuff :?

If you are interested in mills, lathes or other machine shop toys I'm proposing a field trip Weds the 9th leaving the HF at 4:00 for an auction preview at a machine shop. Date isn't negotiable unfortunately. Great stuff some beautiful older mills and lathes that appear to be in great shape, and other fun stuff too. I'm on my phone and don't have the link, but it's at HoffHilk Lee Bros auction.

If you want in say so hear, likewise if you see an item of interest but can't go, and we'll try and scope it out for you.
