The CNC Baron Mill is durable and precise with a cast-iron body, with dovetail ways on the square column for vertical alignment. It is a versatile bench top mid-size CNC mill made for the user who needs both primary and secondary CNC machining applications.

The Baron, our new CNC mill is a great investment for business owners who lower costs by creating their own parts. The mill is simple to operate, offering immediate efficiency solutions that save the operation both time and money. The CNC Baron milling machine is proudly assembled right here in the U.S.A., and it combines both imported and American-made parts in order to offer our clients the most competitive pricing anywhere. Every milling machine at CNC Masters is hand-tested for quality and performance before we package and crate it and get it on a freight truck from our manufacturing facility in the Los Angeles area, California.

CNC milling machines have an important role in the quick and accurate production of high precision components. Since there are different types of advanced milling machines on the market, here are some basic features of these machines explained:

CNC machines exist in two different forms.

When the spindle performs horizontal cutting, it is known as horizontal milling machine, whereas the vertical machining center has its cutting tool positioned accordingly. The head of the CNC Baron Milling Machine tilts for angled drilling, horizontal milling, slotting, and more. Its dovetail ways on the column, X table, and Y saddle allow for precision alignment and movement.

They involve versatile movements of both the cutter and work piece.

Unlike conventional machining centers, the milling process involves controlled movements of both work pieces and cutters based on the integrated software control. These features can actually perform complex parts production based on versatile cutting movements, which is the reason CNC mills are available in different models – 3, 4, and 5-axis machines. The CNC Baron Mill has full 3 Axis (or optional 4 Axis) coordinated motion control on bipolar motors, which is far superior over the unipolar technology in terms of torque and power.

The operation is based on a software control system.

Most CNC milling machines are computer programmed to perform intricate milling operations that aim to minimize contact between the operator and the cutting tools.

These are available in various sizes based on the sizes of the components.

These machines have different sizes which are custom-made for producing various component sizes. The large size CNC milling machines are meant for producing large parts, and vice versa.

Precision Machining using CNC Milling has many user benefits, including:

  • Components Produced with Repetition and Accuracy
  • 3D Complex Components Made with Ease
  • Programs and Fixtures Can be Saved to Reduce Repeat Setup Costs
  • High-Speed Precision Machining Shortens Lead Times
  • Most Materials (Including Hardened Steels) Can be Cut with New Cutter Technology

The CNC Baron machine and controller are built to stock in-house in the USA. We do not buy and re-sell our CNC Driving System. So we’ll never bounce you to a third-party vendor for limited support to either their controller or another vendor’s machine.

The Baron cast iron CNC milling machine is a turn-key solution specifically designed for those who need efficiency in a compact space.  Add rigid tapping control – no need for tapping heads attachments – to tap your series of holes after just running a multiple hole peck drilling operation.  Add a fourth axisprobe control to scan and duplicate parts, or a hand held pendant control to your CNC Baron Mill.

Can the Baron CNC Milling machine fit through a 35” – 36” door way?Yes it can. Move the milling machine in diagonally. The X and Y motors are disconnected from the axes for shipping purposes. You can remove the hand cranks off each motor, stick ½” bolt into them and easily mount and secure the hand cranks directly to the X and Y ball screws to drive and position the axes so that you can move the machine through the doorway without having to dismantle it. However, it is certainly possible to dismantle the milling machine by removing a few bolts. Call or email us to walk you through this procedure.

Can I fit the Baron cnc machine in a basement?It is possible. Make sure your stair ways can support the weight of the machine. Use a refrigerator type dolly, strap the machine to it. Use ¾” plywood to rest over the stairs, use a hoist with ratchet to gently lower the machine down the stairs. Follow all recommended safety cautions.

I just bought the Baron with 4th axis. It’s a real tough CNC mill. I’ve cut mild steel, aluminum and walnut in my first week. I’ve had 40 years of programming and machining experience and this machine impressed me. The synchronized axis works great. I’m looking forward to helical thread milling on Z and 4th axis.

I have been a cnc machinist for 30 years. I have programmed and setup many brands of cnc including Matsuura, Okuma, Fadal, Haas, Milltronics, and more. This is a good machine and the rated tolerances are modest. I have created already a few hundred parts of many sizes and geometries and I am consistently seeing repeatability and tolerance holding of better than .001 – this is a prototyping machine that can do some production. I am very happy with the quality and the service.

We had had our Baron for 10 years. This machine has paid for itself many times over. I work at a division of a major laboratory OEM equipment supplier to the pharmaceutical industries. We design instruments that are a combination of optical and electronic components. We reduce development time due to our ability to design in the morning, make the part and be testing the next day. Normal turn-round for getting reasonably complex parts has come down from the 10 weeks 10 years ago to several days but at a massive cost. Being able to “adjust” or try a suggestion found in testing within hours means we know the boundaries of the final version.
We use Creo as a design platform and port over to BobCAD to generate the tool paths. I have machined Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel, Tool steel, Titanuim, Ceramic, Glass, wood and most plastics. The unusual parts I have made on this mill are aluminum mirrors, parabolic and elliptical. The final surface finishing and polishing was by hand but reduced the time to test from idea from 12 weeks to 2 days at a fraction of the cost. The mirror performance achieved is 60% to 70% throughput, adequate for concept prototypes.
The savings are in time and avoidance of alternative costs to get immediate answers to real design issues.
This is a low cost machine that can handle a larger work piece. Understanding the dynamics of the machine can help achieve respectable dimensional results. You are not going to hog out a 25mm cut through stainless steel and expect it will like it. A little more time with light cuts will produce repeatable results.
The support from CNC Masters is fast and real world, no BS.

This review has been a long time coming.
I work at one of the three largest universities in Ohio with a student population of over 40K students. At the main branch where I am in charge of lock and access control using online and offline locks, we outlived our mechanical lock hardware by 9 years by utilizing the CNC Baron. At first we were able to purchase the well worn parts from the lock manufacturer but that changed over time when the lock manufacturer no longer would sell the parts. The sell for the purchase was an easy one. I simply submitted the figures of either going with new locksets for 6,500 student rooms or the purchase of the CNC Barron. The difference between the two, even including the labor and materials to machine the needed parts to rebuild our locks was close to $10M. The company who manufactured our locksets tried to force us to replace our worn out locksets with their new and improved locksets at a very high cost. We weren’t ready to make a decision to go with their brand or any other brand at the time. The CNC Baron was able to help us hold that decision off so we could do our research diligently. We still have the CNC Baron and we still are keeping from making large purchases on other hardware because we can simply mill out what ever part we would need. The software and machine setup has proven very simple and in no time we are on our way. We have locksmiths running the machine with confidence. I would recommend this machine for any company who might need to take the edge off of being pressured to upgrade just because the company doesn’t support or make the parts you might need.
There will be more to come in the future as we put it through its paces. Once again, I highly recommend the CNC Baron.

I own a small engineering/design company where I design electronic enclosures of all types for commercial and the military. Due to my type of work it became necessary to get a CNC mill to create the one off’s that some clients request. Going to a local machine shop for one part was too costly. Then I came across CNC Masters. Lucky find for my company!
I have been working with CNC Masters for many years now and have been quite satisfied with the customer service they offer. My clients are high demand folks where they need things quickly. That said I’ve never had a delay in response or assistance in getting answers to questions that come up as result of not knowing how to properly use the CNC Masters Baron mill. The Baron machine is a work horse and I use it most every day for something. As for the owner, he is awesome and is an valuable resource for me. He stands behind his product and knows who I am when I call. I encourage anyone looking for a CNC mill to call CNC Masters as this is a machine at a great price point for the small shop like mine.
