This week we welcomed a new member to the Lean Machine family, a brand new CR Onsrud 5 axis Gantry mill. This incredible machine will allow us to process aluminum extrusions from all sides in minimal setups.
Shallow cuts that are almost impossible on a saw (and inaccurate on a miter saw) are easily performed. Notice the Kurt Vises mounted to a linear rail for flexability in setup.
Some cleanup being done on the bottom side of the tube. The Albrecht tool holder has a super long reach with tight runout for optimum balancing and tool life.
