Routing Precision Board HDU with a Techno CNC Systems Machine

Techno CNC Systems has worked with Coastal Enterprises for a long time, so we thought it would be fun to have them fabricate a sign out of Precision Board HDU.  Bob Valentine put together a CAM design using both the Techno CNC Systems and Coastal Enterprises logos.  He then routed a 2″ thick piece of PBLT-30 into a work of art.  You can see the final product below and also get speeds and feeds information for cutting Precision Board using a Venture Plus CNC machine from Techno CNC Systems.
