Beevo has quite a few hobbies. Out of everything he has going on, the fabricated feet to go on his new mill is what caught my eye. A good set of sturdy, adjustable feet for your mill/drill/lathe is often hard to come by. These are put together just to my liking. Sporting 3/4″ thick steel as the base for the feet, with another 1/4″ of rubber pad on the bottom to obtain that non skid surface makes a great combination.

Here is a Harbor Freight 47158 Micro-Mill that has been converted into a CNC controlled mill. Several parts for this conversion were made on another (manual) mill. Other parts needed were sourced from McMaster-Carr. This setup is sporting a homemade coolant system and a low-cost Home/Limit switch system using Hall-Effect sensors (Digikey part # DN6848-ND).
This is one of the immaculately constructed mini-routers that Widgitmaster from CNCZone has been selling on eBay. The first thing done with this router was to convert it to CNC and then make it portable.
This little router has 8″ of X travel, 4″ of Y travel, and just under 2″ of Z travel.
