That sure is cool looking. It is always nice when the equipment is visible but aesthetically pleasing.

CNC = Computer numerical control

Essentially, a CNC machine (CNC mill) will allow coordinate input into a computer, which will then control a mill that can cut out shapes/pieces (that can be assembled into a product, etc).

Think I remember using a CAD CAM machine in school. It was like a Lathe if i remember.

Im working on cleaning up another one but im missing one of the brass nuts that holds the glass tube. I may need to buy one and they cost 25 each. Not a cheap toy. My missus just gives me the funniest looks when I walk with regulators on fire Extinguishers and the likes
