Ah, new toys!  Back at the beginning of the year, the lab acquired a Fadal VMC-20 CNC mill to replace our old Hitachi mill.  The Fadal is an 80s vintage 3-axis machine.  It's in excellent shape and we've spent the last couple months learning how to use it and to interface a modern UI to the front end.  We'll post more details over time but for now, check it out!
