About the CNC Router
SLO MakerSpace is proud to have a 4’x8′ CNC router for use with plywood, wood, plastics, foams, and other soft materials. You must use your own endmills or router bits with this machine. We have a range of cutters you may purchase below including endmills, ball endmills, and engraving bits.
