Very nice Mike,
It would be nice if you could integrate all the conversions from one common ( free ? ) drawing program/  to Gcode / to machine code in one, we would all build or buy your miller, Oh what fame !.

I got completely lost with the Reprap and dxf and gcode, so I just made my 2 axis machine wander round like an old fashioned "turtle" with simple code, but at least I mastered the stepper motors.

"I might be able to do the project without the miller. I won't say what it is but it involves LEDs and switches. A clue is it involves 61 of them, not a very binary number."

Hi @Grumpy_Mike,

What moving speed (xy axes) and RPM(Proxxon mill) you used in milling that RFID coil? Thank you!

Best regards,

I used a speed of 200 for the axis and 10,000 rpm on the spindle.

The project is on line now at:-

Mike, do you have any sources for info on choosing the correct tooling?  I have no idea where to start.

I am still struggling on tooling. You can try and ask on some of the CNC forums like:-
