LILCNC Project Begins

… and so it begins!  Over the course of the next few weeks I will hopefully complete my build of the open-source DIYLILCNC mill.  I’ve been ordering parts from the suppliers listed in the instructions and have received many of those.  During the course of the build I will be adding videos for each step along the way and with any luck I will have a fairly complete build on video.

A little background on me.  I have a degree in Electrical Engineering but have not been practicing for many years other than in the workshop and backyard.  I own a company that builds custom video conferencing solutions for healthcare as well as produce some media and online content.  I have a DIY’ers workshop with nothing fancy in the lines of tools but have a good selection of them to choose from and so hopefully that will not prove to be too big of a challenge in building this mill.

I want to first and foremost give credits where credit is due.  I’m merely one individual building the very slick and straight forward design by Taylor Hokanson and Chris Reilly.  They really get all the credit for the design and instructions associated with this mill.  The website for the mill is and I’ve purchased the laser cut parts for the mill directly from them.  But we’ll get into that a bit more later.

I hope this resource will prove to be beneficial for someone out there and will inspire others to take on this project.
