CNC part 1-Unboxing and Connecting


I received a CNC machine last month and opened it up. Here is video of the initial checkout of the machine.

Since this was posted I have used the machine for many other projects including making gears for my wind turbine and machining plastic front panels for local companies.


I did a lot of research before buying this machine from IMService ( http://www.imsrv.com/ ) and I think I made a good decision as it is making us more productive. The owner of the company, Fred Smith, provides excellent support. Here is a link to the actual 12 x 24 inch machine I bought:

Soon I am going to try to make printed circuits on the machine using special micro end mills.

Here is the YouTube Video of the unboxing: YouTube Video
