Here’s the promo stuff from MakerspaceNorth…
We are very lucky to have Rich Loen on board to delve into the makings of your own CNC machine!
Rich Loen has built many CNC machines including routers, mills, and cutters. He’ll share the knowledge he’s gained both building machines from scratch, and converting metal-working mills to CNC.
Tickets are limited so don’t miss out and snag yours now before they’re all gone!
