Backyard Workshop is a site for my various hobbies, including my homemade CNC machine, Reprap 3d printer, metalworking on my Enco 3-in1 machine, woodworking, aluminum casting, electronics, and more that I do in my garage in Florida
Check out my photo galleries :)
In the building of my two homemade CNC machines I have come to realize that to make my own aluminum parts would be really really helpful. So... I am starting my own homemade aluminum foundry :)
Ok - so I've embarked on a project that is pretty exciting (at least to me) :) - I'm building my own homemade CNC machine
Here's a video that I made that covers the lost foam casting process from cutting the foamy with a CNC machine to pouring the molten aluminum to finishing the part with a fly cutter! Check it out!
I have started, then later rejected, many ideas in building my latest homemade CNC machine - I am moving them to this post to clean up my build post and still keep track of the ideas I have tried...
