Roll (or mill) your own PCBs, brass fittings, molds, you name it. A fabulous Kickstarter project out of SF’s Otherfab folks brings us a portable, computer controlled, 3-axis mill that is specifically designed for use at home or in a small workspace. The design team of this beauty — called the Othermill — has built a compact mini mill that is small and quiet enough for home use, yet precise enough for high level electrical and mechanical prototyping work.
Product pricing still TBD, thus the Kickstarter strategy: buy parts at volume and keep Othermill affordable. Time to chip in!
