Building a CNC router

This instructable will show you how I built my CNC router. I hope you can draw some inspiration from my build and that this instructable will be helpful for your future projects. This instructable shows all the steps I went through in designing and building this CNC router. The main thing I like about a […]

Overview of critical issues

Knowing what feeds and speeds and related parameters (such as the degree of overlap of parallel tooth paths and the depth of cut) to use for a particular type of wood is the most important issue. Once these parameters are known, other issues fall in place.The best way to determine these parameters is to take […]

History of CNC Milling

CNC milling is sometimes referred to as CNC machining, which operates using commands or G codes programmed from an internal computer. CNC, the acronym for Computer Numerical Control, consists of alphanumeric codes, each leading to very specific functions performed by a machine. In the 1950s, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and United States Air Force […]

What is CNC?

CNC is the acronym for Computer Numerical Control. It is an outgrowth of the older term “NC”, which stands for just “Numerical Control”. It refers to the idea of controlling machine tools via computer. CNC Machines are robots of a sort. With the older “NC” term, a computer need not be involved. The machine might […]

How To Build A CNC Machine

I am a regular guy. I do not have a huge fancy CNC machine at work. I do not even have a small milling machine or a lathe. My friends do not have them either, so I have nobody to machine some custom parts for me. I have inquired with several shops and individuals who […]

The stepper motor for CNC machines

When I was a young boy I would make airplanes and trucks with dc electric motors I got from my toys or dad’s shop. My dad was an electronic technician in the Air Force and had lots of electronic stuff to experiment and learn with. I understood the basics and was pretty confident with dc […]
