I found the Arduino Leonardo to be a great way to manage my CNC machine with little programming effort.

This is an easy to build pet feeder with two timers and accurate portions delivered each time.
My 'Gorgy' clock! Enhanced with an IR remote, a TFT display, a barometer, and a humidity and temperature sensor.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to control an Arduino with the help of Blynk App and ESP8266 WiFi Module. This project is quite simple!

Yes of course, the HALL sensor ensures the exact amount of food delivered. It is essential! If you are not so familiar with the Arduino, you should build it 1:1 ?
Thank you for your kind words... The rotary switch is also a good option! The pendant buttons still work great, although they are so cheap... Order some extra! If you'll pay a little amount extra for the shipping costs, the delivery time will be much faster! (I payed 1,76 euro's extra)
I'm in Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands BTW... ;)
Thank you Andrius! The handwheel is no more than a large rotary encoder, spitting out pulses to the CNC controller. But this controller has to support a handwheel of course.
The handwheel has noting to do with my project and you could use one without this project.
A CNC controller, I think ANY CNC controller will support a handwheel and you need the A, B and GND connections. Please google for more info on handwheel and cnc...
My project's goal was to save me the hassle of typing commands on the keyboard getting repetitive tasks done. The CAM software and CNC controller you use doesn't matter. This project will work with ANY of those. In a comment below I explained the workings of the Arduino. Feel free to ask me further questions.
