BuildBrighton has a new CNC router

While there's not been much activity on the blog for the last few weeks, things have been pretty busy elsewhere. Firstly, we're looking at the feasibility of manufacturing locally and getting more people and businesses involved; so rather than sending designs away to the other side of the world to be made up, we're trying to encourage more people "back home" to try manufacturing themselves. Which has kept us busy these last few weeks - and hopefully we'll have more to report very soon.

In the meantime, locally-sourced manufacturing came one step closer to makers in Brighton with a new CNC router being installed at everyone's favourite local hackspace, BuildBrighton

Here it is, up and running - routing shapes out of scrap MDF today, but who knows.... PCBs next week?
