Charter Oak Automation was founded to provide powerful machining systems to hobbyists and small metalworking shops. Our product line comprises some of the largest manual and CNC metalworking mills available in their class, with research and development ongoing to create even better machines for our customers.
Charter Oak Automation purchased the assets of IH CNC & Machinery (itself formerly Industrial Hobbies), and has been continuing production of their popular IH Turnkey CNC Mill ever since. With over ten years of quality mill construction already accomplished, we are now working with the owner of IH CNC & Machinery to ensure the next ten years hold the same quality and value for hobbyists and machinists.
