    What is a personal CNC mill?

    A mini CNC mill is a compact machining center. It provides an economical solution for small parts machining in a compact package that is loaded with full-size features. The chief limitation of a mini-mill is not so much the quality of the work it can produce, but the size of the work it can handle.


    A mini CNC mill is perfect for schools, start-up shops, or as a first step into CNC machining.

    Mini mills are a serious investment, bringing industrial-style machining capabilities to the home or shop. Mini mills possess the power to take a piece of raw scrap and quickly turn it into a useable part, something you can’t say about a hammer or a saw.

    Personal CNC machines that fit your needs

    Milling is the removal of metal with a rotary cutter or other rotating cutting tools. With a SYIL 5, you are able to cut a huge variety of parts, to within tolerances of a few thousandths of an inch or less.

    You can opt for a spindle which allows you to cut at high speed with smaller cutters. The X5 mini mills series all include high precision Linear Guides on X, Y & Z axis's that are proven to give you long-lasting repeatability and accuracy and sets this machine apart from any competitor worldwide in this price range. Our best CNC mini mill is used by many CNC hobbyists, schools and small entrepreneurs.
