Welcome to Cnc Philosophy

The inspiration for this website came the day I setup my taig desktop cnc mill in my basement workshop. Being an experienced machinist I was able to make a complex part that same weekend.  This made me realise that its potential can be limited by the operators lack of knowledge.  A cnc machine in your home workshop can enable you to take your hobby or passion to the next level. It could even help you earn some extra cash or add an extra income stream to your home business.  To do this you need to be able to understand how to use it safely and effectively.   Many people may have bought a cnc mill for their workshop but lacked access to the information to operate it.  Having access to this information can make it the most useful tool in your workshop.  The goal of this website is to share my knowledge so that you will get the most from your machines capabilities. I have worked in various industries throughout my career. This includes injection mold tools, aircraft manufacturing and the oil and gas industry. I have even worked with 3D printers for rapid prototyping.  The information and opinions on this website are from my 30+ years of experience as a machinist.  

There is plenty of information on the web about cnc machining, but I have yet to find a website that helped the hobby user in a clear and presentable format.

This website is my attempt to change that…
