It has been amazing to see this group purchase come together over the last 6 months. This mill is a great example of what we can achieve together. It all started with one member stepping out on a ledge and offering to match funds raised by the space for a CNC mill. If you see Larry walking around the space make sure to shake his hand and say thanks. Because he stepped up we all have a new tool to make things with.Now that we have a big fancy Tormach CNC mill it’s time to make some makers. Our very own Larry will be donating his time to give one on one training starting this week. Your first project will be your name engraved in a block of aluminum created using the conversational mode. As someone with some milling experience it was a straight forward process and Larry was a great teacher. Don’t be intimidated by the big scary mill, Make something. I would encourage you to not stop at the milling. Take your name plate and buff it or powder coat it to make it unique. Contact Larry via email or at a Tuesday night meeting to schedule a time to get checked out on the mill.
A special thanks to Tormach for helping us get this mill. Without their help the money raised by our members would not have got us such an amazing tool. We look forward to sharing all the things we make with the mill with them and supporting them any way we can. TORMACH IS THE BEST! For more info on Tormach and the cool tools they make click here.
