Machine in action.


We recreated the iso images for each switch on the laptop, then used that to program the gcode for the machine. Having seen the process a few times it’s definitely the future. I think Bob’s Chester mill is a likely candidate for conversion to CNC, but I want to keep the manual option.

Almost a project in it’s own right, but definitely worth doing sometime. Looking at what we achieved on Nick’s machine, it simply wouldn’t have been possible manually.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
