General Mach Discussion / Re: Engraving Text with Mach 3
« on: March 04, 2009, 05:56:07 AM »
   I am just starting out with MACH3 but if you click Load Wizards and scroll down to Write wizard I think you might find something you can use. They have a limited number of fonts but it is a beginning point.


I accept your gracious welcome!

     I am Tom Haswell and I reside in Bowling Green, Ohio, USA
     By profession I am a semi-retired newspaper publisher of a paper that has been in the family for over 100 years so you could say I was born and raised in the industry.  I spent much of my time on the mechanical side of printing first on the old hot metal Linotype machines and then running the press.  As we moved into computerized offset printing I became interested in computers.  My hobbies include anything mechanical from building model steam engines to woodworking.  My completed projects list includes everything from doll houses to log splitters with a home made tractor thrown in for good measure.
     I started working with CNC back in the early 1980's.  A friend with a commercial woodworking shop purchased a Digital router and I helped him get started with it. He later retired and I bought the machine.  It has very little time on it. Think "like new".  I have it set up with the original Anaheim Automation controller running with Bobcad.  
     I am currently getting prepared to switch it over to MACH3 and am looking for all the information and advice that I can get!  This of course is what brings me to this forum and I look forward to meeting and sharing ideas with everyone that I can.

                 Thanking you in advance I am .........
                                                                     Thomas M. Haswell
