Please read the below carefully. The library will supply safety glasses and hearing protection for those using and around the CNC milling machine.
The below is provided on the Bantam website as a Safety Overview:
Do not touch the sharp tips of end mills, even when the milling machine is not in operation, as they may cause injury.
Do not touch or place hands near moving parts—such as the carriages, rails, frame, spindle, and pulleys—while the milling machine is in operation.
When using the CNC machine, tie back long hair and avoid clothing or jewelry that may get caught.
Disconnect the main power plug from the outlet and store the milling machine when not in use.
Only use the power cord supplied with the milling machine. To do otherwise may result in electrocution or fire.
Always plug the CNC machine into a grounded outlet that matches the plug. Do not modify the power cord or plug in any way.
Do not touch moving parts on the spindle house assembly after use. They may be hot.

The E-stop button is located on the bottom left side of the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine’s enclosure. To engage the E-stop button, you just have to press it in. The machine will remain on, but the spindle will still and the machine’s X, Y, and Z carriages will stop moving. This safety feature is great to use if you see something dangerous is happening with the machine. Some examples of this may include:
