Hardware and Tools


You probably won’t believe this, but the CNC machine described in this book can be built with a total of four tools (mitre box, mitre saw, tap, and electric drill/screwdriver) and a few miscellaneous items such as drill bits, tape measure, and the bolts, nuts, washers, and other small items. What this means for you is that you can realistically build your own CNC machine with a minimal amount of tool purchases. It may take a little longer to build using just the tools we’ve listed than if you have a fancy workshop at your disposal, but build it you can—visit www.buildyourcnc.com and you can watch over 30 videos showing you a CNC machine built using this small collection of tools.
