CNC Milling Machine
I built this CNC Mill in order to make molds for my carbon fiber trumpet project, and I've ended up using it to make many other parts as well. I've even used it as a vertical CNC lathe to make precise aluminum pens. The mill is a Sieg SX2 from Little Machine Shop which I converted to CNC with stepper motors and controllers from Xylotex, and stepper mounting hardware and ball screws from CNC Fusion. I control the machine with Mach3 using G-Code I create with HSMWorks, other CAM packages, or by hand. I built an enclosure around the mill and implemented recirculating flood coolant.
