Hello. I am newly retired and have acquired a kit built CNC mill. A close friend who basically likes building anything complex but not unlike the guy who builds a guitar but doesn't play he did not know what to do with it. I had a 4 year run in the 70's as a cnc operator and G code programmer so he gave it to me.  Mostly Lathe work. 50hp Cincinnati Milicrons and Cadillac's. I too worked with tape controllers (Fanuc)  that could be programmed directly with G. We had to trig out the tool paths and convert to G. I liked the work back then but one day the plant genius came out to my machine with a print out of a tool path on paper built by a "PC". Something clicked and I began a 40 year career in Enterprise Networking. Now it seems I have a new hobby which will be getting my new toy up and running and making chips. It's my pleasure to be here and I will not hesitate to ask questions. It's been a long time since my last shift at the machine.
