It’s been an 18 year dream to own a Fadal CNC mill. We finally found a used one that was close to our budget last May. After months of studying manuals, repairing, testing and CLEANING (sure now I’ve got it all dirty again) we got our first part machined today and it turned out perfect. Is there anything cooler looking than freshly milled aluminum? I think not.
This will be a vacuum plenum for another machine that we’re building for milling headstocks.
