CNC Product Reviews & Testimonials

Here are just a few examples of what our satisfied customers are saying about our CNC Milling products. These are REAL PICS from REAL CUSTOMERS who have generously gone out of their way to take and send to us to show what they are machining with their CNC MASTERS Milling Machine.

How to Organize Tools In Your Workshop

Organized workshopScraps of wood and metal likely cover the surface of your workshop as proof of how hard you work in that space. However, a workshop does not need to be messy and will function much better if it is organized and inviting. If you are happy with the way your workshop looks and feels, you’re more likely to spend time on those projects that are piling up.

Finished Space

If the ceiling is unfinished in your workshop and it has wood or wires exposed, you’ve found your first project. A space without a ceiling will always feel cold and unappealing. You will likely spend a lot of time in your workshop and it’s important for it to feel welcoming. Painting the walls of your workshop is also an easy way to make the space feel warmer. Choose a color that you really like but wouldn’t necessarily use in your home. You can paint a workshop whatever color you want and that’s fun!

Give It Light

You will need light in your workshop in order to make it a practical space. Most workshops are within a garage or basement and both have little light. Fluorescent lights are ideal for a workshop. Although they feel very industrial, they are energy efficient and don’t give off heat. An encased fluorescent light will also not shatter or spark if it is dropped or knocked which is inevitable in a workshop.


Benefits of Workbenches

Installing a workbench is a vital part of making your workshop functional. A workbench will give you a large, flat space to handle multiple projects. Workbenches often come with drawers and hooks as well to use for storage and organizing. Place a padded, rubber mat down at the foot of the workbench to make it more comfortable for you when you’re standing at it.

Know Safety Precautions

Your workshop is likely an extension of your home but you still need to recognize that many of the materials in a workshop are dangerous. If you have chemicals in your workshop, store them in a locked cabinet and away from anything that could give off heat. Keep a fire extinguisher in your workshop as a precaution as well. Always wear closed toe shoes, such as sneakers or boots, in your workshop to protect your feet from tools or nails.

Categorize and Organize

Work benches are full of multiple tools, wires, tapes, paints, and extension cords. Come up with categories for whatever you have a multitude of in your workshop, label drawers, and organize accordingly. Make a habit of putting things away in the correct places. If designated drawers hold specific items, you will also save time because you’ll know where to find what you need.

Workshops are for building and creating. Whether you are creating a CNC machine masterpiece or fixing a light fixture, your workshop should feel organized, comfortable, and inviting.

The Importance of Cleaning in CNC Machining

clean cnc machineWhen it comes to your CNC machines, you probably know the ins and outs of operation, but have you ever looked into their cleaning? Many individuals forget the importance of regular cleaning or get swept up in the excitement of everyday work, allowing this task to fall to the wayside.

We at CNC Masters would like to bring cleaning back to the forefront of your attention for a minute, reminding you of just how important it is to clean all components of your CNC machines on a regular (we recommend weekly) basis. Why? We have listed a few of the most important reasons below.


Your machines are used to cut through some tough materials, and because of this, they are going to experience a lot of everyday wear and tear. Just think of how much of a mess the metal shavings, cutting fluids and oils can make of your shop floor! Regular cleaning is just one way to help extend the lifetime of your machines. Prevent grit and grime from building up – both on their exteriors and interiors – to help ensure longevity.


Clean machining parts will give you the best possible results, helping to ensure that the products you make are the best that they can be. Regular cleaning will also allow you to check machining components often, helping to ensure you notice parts that need replacing or adjusting – instead of finding out when your machine breaks down.


A clean machining shop is a safe one, and this motto should apply to your machines themselves, as well as the tools and surfaces around them. Weekly cleaning will keep your fleet of CNC machines in top shape, preventing potential injuries and break downs.
