CNC Enclosure - DIY Guerrilla style.

Has anyone ever cannibalized a dishwasher as a CNC enclosure... It just seems like low hanging fruit for my DIY CNC Mini Mill.

Thoughts?

Sounds like a really cool idea. There is sound insulation from the beginning and it is air/watertight also. There is even a cooler fluid pump with some minor mods. What would be needed is a glass front to enable you to see whats going on inside though :) Or maybe a webcam could work as well?

Go for it!

After all the retrofitting of CNC components, it's a bit small, but I have not given up. I think that I will use just the base and build the enclosure around that... I had hoped to use the door with Acrylic to allow a view inside, but I suspect that it will require me to loose the frame potentially.

The CNC goodies are running, now for the work of making the enclosure.

What if you used a large wall oven? They already have glass doors, soundproofing, heat proofing and most have a light already installed. They even have an available huge power source.
