    Default Make your own machinable wax

    Great article at Instructables on how to make your own machinable wax for practice work, or testing out CNC jobs before using real stock:

    I have done this and it works great. NEVER EVER use hardwood to test your CNC mill out. A Wood Router is made totally different than a Mill. The wood dust will tear you mill up fast.
