    We're super excited about this competition, and the opportunity to get a CNC to be able to play with and learn about. Thanks for watching!



    "We would love to get a MiniMill so that we can easily prototype parts for different projects in-house and teach others about how to use CNC's.

    I (Kevin) have been slowly growing my home workshop over the last two years with new machine tools like my Craftsman/atlas manual lathe, but I don't have the space to buy a full-size milling machine. I need a small machine like the MiniMill to be able to do milling operations that I just can't do on my lathe. I am very interested in CNC and recently bought a 3D printer with the money I earned working last summer to be able to learn more about the process."

    Here is my video. We have a nonprofit organization that makes prostheses for the developing world. We have been working on a Delrin prosthetic knee joint and I think we are very close to the final prototype. We have been searching for ways to inexpensively make the knee joint and the MiniMill seems to fit the bill.

    @Brintrot Is there a way for anyone to get more information on your organization?
