Glad you are here. I’m Tim. A husband, father and DIY weekend warrior. Follow along as I share what works and what doesn’t in the world of DIY Machining. Hopefully you can use this information to bring that cool project of yours to life.
Have you ever wanted your own CNC machine? The thought of a machine to build stuff for me is fascinating. As a long time mechanical engineer, I have designed hundreds of parts that were CNC machined. Yet, I never learned how to run a CNC machine. I remember looking at the row of small desktop CNC mills in the engineering building in college thinking how cool it would be to run those. Without the time to fit the CNC manufacturing class into my schedule, learning to run a CNC mill had to wait. I am happy to say the wait is over. I am currently running a DIY CNC mill based on a Harbor Freight desktop mill.
