My friend actually has one... or will. He has the mini mill, and has ordered the components necessary to make it a 2.5 degree cnc (manual z direction apparently....).

For the type of stuff a lot of us do here aka, working with plastics, this device seems like it would be awesome to have.

ya I forgot about that stuff..

That would be super useful after I build a prototype with HDPE, if I like it and want it stronger/cleaner.. I could do that.


awesome stuff
