From the creators of the Mill One hobby CNC kit, Sienci, The LongMill promises to bring the capabilities of a large CNC router at a hobby friendly price.
The unit features ACME leadscrews and ant-backlash nuts for precision and linear guides to improve rigidity over its little brother, the Mill One.
5 to 10 years ago, you were looking at spending $5000-$6000 for a small commercial desktop CNC routing mill. Today, the hobbyist based CNC market has exploded. With the availability of 3D printers and laser cutters, hobbyists have been able to design and build their own desktop CNC mills.
About 3 years ago I built a 4' x 2' MPCNC based machine with hardware store parts, 3D printed parts and laser cut parts. I'm still using my MPCNC to this day.
The LongMill will be Kickstarted on March 21st, 2019. The target Kickstarter price is approximately $799USD for the LongMill 12×12 and $999USD for the LongMill 30×30. Check out their site for more information
