$75 CNC Mini Mill Parts Machined

We have some of our Mini Mill parts machined. We will need some time to get the larger pieces of material in to produce the frame side pieces but we will push forward. Stay tuned.

New CNC Milling Machine Design

I have been working on a new design for a strong and affordable milling machine frame. It is also a very simple design as well that utilizes a standard right angle bracket from Enco. It consists of two steel plates that are 3/8" x 5" x 18". You then buy the affordable right angle brackets form Enco that are cast and machined and come with slots in them. If you buy the 4 1/2" wide brackets they cost about $7.00 when on sale. That is dirt cheap for a cast iron precision machined bracket. You must then locate and tap holes in your steel plates to accommodate the mounting of the bracket.
