Dirt Rider’s Home CNC Shop

I have tremendous respect for the beautiful results Dirt Rider gets from a very modest round column mill he has converted to CNC:

The Mill, with flood coolant enclosure. It’s a round column mill/drill!

Weber Precision

Here is a beautiful shop with both manual and CNC machines.

Tidy and well organized…

Emco Maier Super 11 Lathe with Accurite DRO…

Bridgeport mill with Accurite DRO and Air Powered Drawbar…

New Addition is a NASA II CNC Milling Machine. Get a load of the sound system in the top right! That’s not the original control he had on the mill when I first saw it. Not sure if its a retrofit package (looks a little like it) or whether he built it. Check out the 4th axis too.

Now we’re talking seriously cool machinery. How about a Haas TL-1 Toolroom CNC lathe in a home shop?

Here’s the sort of project built in this great shop!
