Desktop CNC Mills
For versatility and precision, few machine tools can beat the desktop CNC milling machine. A good desktop CNC machine provides operators with a range of features, from a small machine footprint to high-precision controls. The CNC Masters’ collection of desktop mills are perfect for small businesses and companies looking to expand their offerings, with plenty of power and an affordable price.
Desktop CNC Machines for Hobbyists and Professionals Alike
Like its woodworking counterpart, the desktop CNC router, the best desktop machine combines several quality features in a reliable, well-built package. That means variable spindle speed, easy-to-learn and operate control software, a robust power supply, and the best quality cast iron frame. The idea is to take the best features of a full-size industrial milling machine and offer them in a machine with a smaller footprint, better suited for a small business or small workshop.
While desktop milling machines often have a reduced cutting area, they can still work with various metals and similar materials. Many small shops and home workshops that purchase desktop milling machines are looking for a reliable machine that provides versatility and good quality.

Should I buy a used CNC machine?
Due to the high price tag, many hobbyists look for used machines. If that’s you, CNC Masters carry several used machines for every price range. Owning a CNC machine can increase your profit margins and be a significant saving for your business, but purchasing a CNC machine can be a big investment. Price is something that shouldn’t keep you from the best CNC router.

Are vertical milling machines better than horizontal milling machines?
Vertical and horizontal milling machines are quite different. Vertical mills are usually smaller, cheaper, and easier to use than horizontal mills. However, horizontal machining centers are better suited for large-scale industrial applications.
A desktop CNC milling machine shares a number of characteristics with a desktop CNC router. Both are oriented in largely the same way, with a workpiece fixed to a bed beneath a rotating cutting tool.
What is a desktop CNC milling machine?
