CNC for Gunsmithing
Tormach PCNC Mills are an excellent tool for custom gunsmithing and are widely used by both professionals and hobbyists alike.
Tom Baker of Lafayette, Indiana is using his PCNC 1100 to manufacture a laser tag system that works well in the sunlight at his company Steradian Tech. Originally using the PCNC 1100 to make prototypes, Baker now uses it in a production capacity to mill the bodies for the S7-X, a competition laser tag gun that is all done with 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum.
At Cash Manufacturing, Scott Pobjoy of Waunakee, Wisconsin uses a PCNC 1100 to manufacture many of the over 100 parts and accessories that comprise a full catalog of supplies and accessories for firearms.
