Main CNC Mill

Our primary milling machine is a Tormach PCNC 770. Here is a link to their website: http://www.tormach.com/product_pcnc_770.html

Here is a link to a pdf download of the machine manual: https://www.tormach.com/uploads/394/PCNC770-3-UM-B1-4-pdf.html

We are capable of machining wood, plastic, and any metal up to and including steel.

We recommend that you watch [this video] if you are unfamiliar with machining as a whole, and [this video series] to gain a better understanding of machining techniques.

We will be updating this site with guides and tutorials for CAD, CAM, machining and other topics in the following weeks and months.

For the time being, we recommend that you design parts in [Autodesk Fusion 360].

Micro Mill

The smaller CNC milling machine uses FlashCut CNC Software. Here is a link to their manuals: http://www.flashcutcnc.com/support/product-manuals

Our hardware includes a Model 501A Signal Generator. A copy of the manual is here
