I’ll admit: this video isn’t as easy to dive right into as the one above, but building your own EDM isn’t exactly for everybody. For MEs who enjoy the occasional dabble in EE for fun, this one’s for you! Word of warning: this isn’t as simple as Macgyver-ingyour uncle’s drill press into a knee mill!

I've wanted to build one of these for years, even though I didn't have a real use for one before, no experience of using one, and only a rough idea of how they work. But there are just some things you can't make with a lathe or milling machine and the only way to do it is with one of these.
