Product Description

The Zen Toolworks 12×12 CNC Milling Machine is our largest and most powerful CNC machine offered. This machine’s structure is our strongest and most rigid available. It is capable of being used for milling, engraving, carving, inlay work, pcb manufacturing, 3D printing, and much more. The machine comes in several variations to be outfitted to best suit your application. We offer it in “kit form” so you can assemble it leisurely over the weekend.

We are now including the Aluminum Gantry with each 12×12 kit! This ads considerable strength and rigidity to the machine’s structure.
