People Interested in Working on This


The shop could use a CNC machine. There are already designed and open CNC plans on the internet. The CNC machine work area should be 2'x4' or larger for sheet metal use.

A CNC machine is primarily used as a computer automated cutting tool. User inputs a file, the machine cuts out the part.


  • Circuit board etching and drilling
  • Wood cutting
  • Acrylic etching
  • Sheet metal cutting


Online Resources

A Instructables page that has detailed instuctions on how to make a CNC machine, down to the patterns needed.


Need some links here to CNC design projects on the web that can be reproduced at the shop.
