We’ve create a guide outlining some key safety considerations to help anyone involved in building a CNC machine. You should never cut corners when it comes to safety, so be sure to take the time to look at our guide as it may help avoid unnecessary risks and accidents. If you’re looking to build your own CNC machine, why not have a look at our range of switches that will enhance your safety? These include limit switches and emergency stop buttons.
