Our Story

PartsBadger was founded by a couple of guys who needed custom parts machined. The process turned out to be time consuming, overly complicated, and expensive – so expensive that purchasing a CNC machine proved to be the better option. Really.

It started when we designed an aluminum enclosure for our video recorder business and started looking for someone to make it. We thought it would be easy. We sent off twelve RFQ’s and had a total of three responses – weeks later and at ridiculously high prices.

So we bought a CNC machine and learned how to use it – because that was literally the only way we could get things done at a reasonable cost and fast enough to meet our needs. Soon enough, we outgrew our Trusty Tormach PCNC770 and started to expand to meet our own needs.

It dawned on us that everyone else who has ever wanted a custom part machined likely had encountered the same roadblocks and we knew we could help. The process for ordering custom parts was outdated and unreliable. Using modern tools, we created a way to get instant quotes, great prices, and reliable performance.
