Not a kit build, you can't buy this off the shelf. I work as a machinist and wanted something for the home shop. So, i built one.

Evans- what for info do you need?

is there a site with info on how to build something like this? i started going to school to be a machinist and i was working in a shop at the same time. then the place i worked for closed up. i had to find a job in a hurry and just never finished going to school. i just recently opened my own performance shop and would love to have something like that for my shop now.

Depending on how big of a work area you want it will probably be more cost effective for you to convert an already existing mill to CNC. I built my own because i have a vast supply of machinery for me to use at my work. Without any machines you could never build a machine like this.

Probably the best thing to do would be to buy the X3 Mill from Grizzly and covert it. It has a decent work area, its very rigid, and its decently priced.

G0463 Mill / Drill

Then go to CNC Fusion and buy one of there kits for the X3. Then pretty much all you will need to buy is stepper motors, a CNC controller (Mach 3), a computer, and some tooling and your ready to make chips.
