I think I may have found the CNC mill that I would like to use to cut out all the parts for my bartender project. It’s called the Shapeoko 2. This seems like it will do anything from cutting out aluminum parts, to copper printed circuit boards. It cuts plastics too which can be useful. You are only limited by your imagination.
This is an update to a previous version of the Shapeoko machine. They are currently taking pre-orders and it will be shipped around December 21st, 2013. The price is right too. A complete setup is only $649. This is also completely open source so if I decided to add features to it later, I could. It is based on Arduino and comes with the software already loaded.
