About CNC Milling Machine

The individual components of your CNC milling machine slide around each other in a precise harmonic dance, slicing and carving the metal like butter. Tools extend and retract, spinning around your finished piece gracefully before slowly coming to rest. A computer-controlled CNC milling machine is an amazing tool for creating beautifully crafted metalwork and metal parts for machinery, thanks to the high tolerance inherent in the device and the wide variety of surface finishes accessible for your projects. Many of these machines are available from the vast inventory on eBay, so you can find the perfect addition to your workshop. If you want to save some time on your machining, look into a model such as the Haas VF2 CNC vertical mill, which is wired for four-axis machining. Adding one more axis to the range of motion in your mill means that you can complete a project in a single setup instead of having to rearrange your piece for a different setup. Or, try a Tormach PCNC for ultimate portability — this scaled-down model is small enough to operate in your home garage. Start carving your ideas in reality with a CNC milling machine.
