This is a micro sized benchtop mill that is suitable for milling small parts in soft metals such as Aluminum and Brass. While it is a manual mill it wouldn’t be too difficult to convert it to CNC by adding suitable stepper motors and a controller.
The travel specs are:
X axis- 150 mm
Y axis- 75 mm
Z axis- 150 mm
This design uses off the shelf assembled linear slides and 80/20 Aluminum extrusion for simple assembly and accurate alignment. The beauty of this design is its modular nature- you can make it any size you want (with a few limitations.)
