3D Printed Desktop CNC mill

3D Printed Desktop CNC mill | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Welcome to this project. The CNC UNO is a small desktop CNC Mill that can be used for hobby engraving and routing, PCB milling and education. It is mainly made with 3D Printed ABS plastic parts and plywood. Before starting this project, please observe that this machine is not intended for precision work nor for cutting hard materials like metal. As the machine parts are made of plastic and wood, the machine will flex under heavy load and that is why this project is for fun rather than any serious application. That said, it is a great little machine for hobbyists that want something to play with without having to spend a fortune.

Hackers, Makers, bricoleurs from DIY ( do-it-yourself) and DIWO (do-it-with-others) movements and the realm of social and environmental activism are beginning to act. Everywhere in the world, small but clever actions, solutions and sustainable implementations fueled by  local transformations are beginning to work.

Maybe the Rich Don’t Care About the Middle Class Because They Don’t Live Near the Middle Class | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
When people say Americans are dividing along class lines, they usually mean it as a metaphor. But it's also true in a literal sense. When it comes to where we live, the rich, poor, and shrinking middle class have been moving further apart.
