Tool to compliment the Glowforge - Mini Mill


#1

I just ordered one of these. Not expecting it to be extremely high accuracy or anything but I thought it might be fun to have around. Can’t complain about the price either.

What do you plan to cut with that mill? If I read the ad correctly that spindle puts out 70 watts of power, which probably work well on anything more substantial than balsa wood or soft plastics. A friend has the CNC’d Taig mill and makes working model engines with that so a manual Taig could be a nice upgrade for you.

Mostly going to be using it with wood and potentially plastics. Found some videos online of people using it to work with aluminum with reasonable results as well.

Good luck with it and please post back here with a report when you have it up and running.
