Neat CNC Chess Set

4 months by cncdivi


I recently saw this chess set by Kelly Fasnacht posted over on the LinkedIn CNC Programming group and thought it wa really neat.  What I like best about it is all the pieces can be made on a lathe.  The Knight is usually a sticking point that has to be done on a mill, but I like Kelly’s design for it here.  He made it back in the 1990’s using only one turning tool with a 15 degree insert.   The pieces are made from Aluminum and Bronze.
