Mike Estee is the CTO & Co-Founder of the Other Machine Company, a San Francisco based hardware startup working to bring simple to use milling machines to the making public. As member of the larger Bay Area maker community, he has been building, dreaming, and making mistakes for over a decade.

He has been a software engineer, an electrical engineer, a mechanical engineer, technical director for a traveling circus, an aerial performer, machinist, roboticist, lighting designer, and most recently: an enthusiastic supporter of the suburban manufacturing center.

Someday he hopes find a way to do all of these things at once, but until then he will happily settle for just being good at making breakfast. His hash browns are legendary.


What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone.
