Bantam Tools now has several tools in its accessory line that are beginner-friendly and empower users to expand the abilities of the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine to include fourth axis machining. Clean-up is also a breeze with the Bantam Tools air blaster and vacuum accessory. All three accessories are available at

“It is awesome to be able to provide fourth axis machining with the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC fourth axis accessory,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of Bantam Tools. “When milling a job that calls for multiple flips, index milling, or continuous milling, this accessory is fully integrated with the latest model of the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine that’s fourth axis compatible and our intuitive Bantam Tools Milling Machine Software. To get users up to speed, we are also offering the first Bantam Tools educational course that levels up fourth axis skills. We developed this educational course specifically for this accessory to help users build their fourth axis machining skills and will have additional courses coming later this year.”

The Bantam Tools Desktop CNC fourth axis accessory is designed to be a beginner-friendly accessory that expands machining capabilities to include fourth axis machining. It’s a gateway into fourth axis machining and is a tool that customers can use to grow their machining skills. It makes complex parts more attainable and offers more machining options for 3D surfacing, as well as reduces machining complexity with parts that require machining on multiple sides. The new Bantam Tools Desktop CNC fourth axis accessory empowers users to turn their 3-axis Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine into a 4-axis machine quickly and easily.

Also available is the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC air blaster accessory, which increases tool life, decreases cycle times, and improves material finish, taking in-house prototyping to the next level. It is ideal when working with heavy-debris materials such as aluminum, or when machining larger chips. Attached to an air compressor, the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC air blaster accessory has a powerful air flow that can be adjusted using a flow-rate knob. It can also adjust the nozzle to make sure the user is blowing air at the right angle for the cuts.

The third accessory recently launched is the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC vacuum accessory that seamlessly attaches to the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine, allowing for live vacuuming to increase chip evacuation and decrease clean-up time. The vacuum accessory allows for better material visibility, decreased iteration time, decreased clean-up time, a smoother, better finish, and helps maintain the life of end mills.

“Our customers have been requesting more accessories to go with their Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machines, and we have been hard at work creating these new accessories,” said Pettis. “All three of these accessories work seamlessly to help mill better products. We are excited to see our customers’ responses to these items and know they will encourage other mechanical engineers, entrepreneurs, electrical engineers, machinists, designers, students, educators, and digital fabricators to make more parts.”

Bantam Tools builds desktop CNC machines with professional reliability and precision. All of Bantam Tools’ desktop milling machines are clean, safe, and easy to use, making them a great choice for any lab, shop, classroom, or studio.
