We're constantly inspired by the creativity and ingenuity of our community members. There's no telling what amazing things they'll make using our small-but-mighty Bantam Tools Desktop PCB Milling Machine. We love that it's precise and reliable enough for professional-grade builds and affordable enough to be accessible. It's been a few months since we did a roundup of neat community projects spotted across social media, so we offer a vast array here. What are you milling? Be sure to tag your posts with @bantamtools or #bantamtools. We'd love to see what you're making!

Robot visors go from flat to curved thanks to the slip roll. #bantamtools #robotrecipes

Coasters! I made these for some Christmas gifts last month and they turned out great! Photo by my sister @simply_eb_boutique! I made these on my tiny @bantamtools Othermill (I guess it's just called Bantam Tools now). I originally got this CNC to make PCBs as circuit boards only need a small cut in the top of them. This was pushing this little mill, but they seemed to turn out okay. I can't wait for my Inventables Xcarve to show up soon! I will hopefully be making many more of these coasters in all types of designs and have my sister sell them in her Etsy shop. Speaking of! This post wouldn't be possible without @simply_eb_boutique! Erika sells a bunch of awesome custom coffee and tea mugs over there--you should check it out! And stay tuned for some new products!
