Pocket NC started out in Everett, Washington in 2010. After searching long and hard for a desktop mill that we liked, we decided to set out to design and build one ourselves. We spent 6 months developing the design of a 3 axis mill but quickly realized that many people would be more interested in a 5 axis machine. After building and learning from 3 prototypes, we finally made it to our 4th prototype(the first that was fully functional). We launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in the summer of 2015 and are currently working on producing those machines.
