Presenting the extremely capable Emvio MachineTools EMV-25VBB Hobby Milling machine ! Silent, compact with loads of travel and of course compatible with our quick change tooling! Since 2016, we cannot get enough of them. This hobby mill machine is a perfect hobby mill and also a fantastic base for a CNC conversion.


Our very own brand of machine tools. We revealed this EMV-25VBB Hobby mill to the public at the 2016 Bristol Model Engineering Exhibition and they drew massive interest.

Since then we have place these little mills in garages as well as larger companies that do “secret” stuff. So although we do class it as a Hobby Milling Machine, it can actually work fine in a more demanding environment.

Why not give us a call to chat about them and see if they suit your needs? We have used them ourselves so know them pretty well. This could be the hobby mill for you.

We do also keep spare on hand should you need them!


Here are some quotes from people actually seeing these in the flesh:

The base on this machine seems so much sturdier than the one I bought from **********.

Finally, someone put a wiring diagram on the machine….

The safest way to lift?

A big concern with the EMV-25VBB and EMV-25VBBDRO is how one would lift it to get it on the bench or stand. Please do not take it apart as this could affect accuracy later on. Instead follow the instruction in our video or give us a call.

    Ok so I was looking for my first lathe and mill for my own little workshop, and was finding machines were either too large and 3 phase or too small and a bit christmas crackery, then I ended up here. I took a gamble and bought one of these mills and if you happen to be in the same position, feel free to relax….. this machine is very sturdy, all the handles, bed, head and everything are solid with nice smooth actions and feel the real deal. The spindle will run up to top speed without vibration issues or wobble of the machine and everything is as you would want it to be. for a single phase mill, you can’t go wrong here at all for this price, i’m more than happy to give it the thumbs up.

    Also worth mentioning is that I love these guys. I have called these guys when they are out of the country and they still answer my questions and bend over backwards to assist me. Gents through and through.

    I previously owned a Warco WM14 bench mill which I converted to CNC using a Centroid Acorn controller, this worked well but the mill was just too small, so I wanted something bigger as the Y axis travel was only 100mm! There were three specifications I had in mind that were essential for the replacement mill, the 1st being Z column should be flange mounted to the based for greater rigidity, the 2nd was belt drive spindle and the 3rd that the spindle be R8 and not morse taper.
    Only one machine ticked all these boxes and some, that being the Precision Matthews PM25. Unfortunately, this machine isn’t readily available here in the UK, or so I thought. Whilst browsing the internet I then came across the EMV25-VBB hobby mill and visited the EMVIO Engineering website, this machine is essentially the similar to the Precision Matthews PM25 but in better colours. Sadly, the machine was out of stock, but at least now knew that it was available in the UK so I registered to be notified when it would be back in stock.
    April 2021 I was informed of its future availability, so I immediately placed my order. Within minutes of placing the order George, the MD of EMVIO Engineering phoned just to confirm that the machine was still being shipped and I would not receive it until early July. During this conversation I was also offered the additional purchase of a CNC conversion kit, specifically designed for this machine which was a straight bolt on with no additional machining, so I took him up on the offer as the mill purchase was intended for CNC use.
    George kept me regularly updated as to the shipping of the mill and early July 2021 my EMV25-VBB was delivered. The CNC conversion kit was delivered early June 2021. The build quality of the mill is excellent, and the belt drive spindle is so quiet even at max speed which is 3000rpm in high range.
    I immediately began the CNC conversion. The CNC kit supplied was made to the specifications of my NEMA 23 stepper motors I had from my previous WM14 project. The CNC kit is exceptional, the quality is outstanding, and the black anodise finish is superb. The items are clearly labelled and includes all fasteners, bearings, pulleys and drive belts. There are no instructions provided with the kit, and when I did have a query, I emailed George who immediately phoned within minutes to provide answers and support. The aftersales support is exemplary and never too much trouble.
    I have now been using the EMV25-VBB as a CNC mill for 5 months and from a hobbyist point of view it is robust, very accurate and quiet with the bonus of excellent aftersales support from EMVIO Engineering.
