My CNC PCB Mill

Written by Chuck. Posted in Milling

One of the best things I purchased in 2009 was a CNC Mill.  I watched the forums, mainly www.cnczone.com, for several months.
I was lucky enough to pickup one of the well made Widgetmaster Mills.
Before I had the mill I spent hours drilling PC Boards by hand and etching them in caustic chemicals.
