 Smiley  I think somebody has the CNC bug.  Neat machine.  I like the handles, round and smooth.  My Bridgeport clone has some real n**T knockers on it.

I can still remember the feeling of the first time the first machine runs under CNC after all the hard work that has been put in Smiley

Hey BladeRunner,

Nice work on the HM32. I watched your Youtube video and it looks and runs great.

Do you still have any plans for the HM32 setup? I would be most appreciative if you were willing to part with them.

I have built an 1170mm x 735mm flat bed CNC for timber but I wanted to convert my HM32 to CNC for some time now (and eventually my lathe too).

Cheers,

Baz
