CNCCookbook: Be a Better CNC'er


Blanch the Baby Blanchard Surface Grinder

This was an odd little machine I came across quite by accident on eBay. I was the only one that bid, so it wasn't much money. It's small, which should make it convenient. I have no idea what I'll do with it!

Surface Grinders are great for achieving precision, but another reason people look to them is to improve surface finish. A ground surface looks very nice indeed. However, if you can improve the surface finish of your milling operations enough, you may avoid the grinding step. Be sure to check out our guide to Improving Surface Finish on Milling Machines.
