I get to use a 3 axis CNC at work.
One has 2 vise's on it and the other has 3 vise's on it.
The thing I like about these machines is I can program these conversational and I don't need to know G-code ( which I don't know ).
It has a DFX file reader on it so I can down load cad drawing and just trace them and it rights the program for me.
The best part, work will let me use this for my projects when there not in use.
