Newbie gonna try to make one
« on: May 28, 2010, 07:04:06 PM »
Hi all, I am a cnc machinist with 14 yrs of operating settingup and programming g-code and conversational machines. I thought it was time I brought my work home ;)  I bought a plans from http://buildyourcnc.com/default.aspx I thought I would start simple and get my feet wet, I have never set-up a machine in the sense of when it's new in the shop or having to fix a cnc machine, but I figured I have computer laying around and really want to do more 3d machining. So I will update, prolly very slowly as I go. I will say in advance, Thank You, to all of those who will answer my questions in the future.
