TheCrashCast crew are certainly no strangers to CNC technology, but it seems like it's been ages since we've discussed these magical machines on the show. As luck would have it, my tooling needs have changed a bit recently, so I have embarked on the build of a new machine - the OX!

In this 276th installment of our show, we talk about some of the ways one might get into CNC routing and some of the machine plans and kits that are available, whether you want to scratch-build one yourself, or just purchase a kit someone has already designed and tested.
