 8)Hi my name is Henry I live in Auckland New Zealand.I've been working with Alphacam cad/cam and scm prisma 5 axis router for the last 5 years and a 3 axis 5 years before that.I bought an old Morbidelli 502 router for my own home use. The controller died soon after I found out how to get code onto it via floppy discs(what a mission).I discovered Mach3 after searching the net for a solution. So far I've been pleased with the choices and support. Live and Prosper

My name is Elizabeth.  My husband and I have a sign company and are looking forward to adding metal signs to the types of signs we make with our new CNC machine.  Quite a steep learning curve for us.  I'm looking forward to being able to pick everyone's brains!

Hi All,
My name is Martin and I live in Vail Arizona. I'm sort of newbe to the CNC machining world but I use a CNC plasma machine all the time in my metal fabrication business. I also work for the Military as a Machinist / Welder. I have just purchased a Taig CNC mini Mill about 4 months ago and I'm having an issue with the Z axis.  I will open a new thread and see if you fine folks can help me out. Thanks.

hello,
steve - west london - England
want to purchase a 3040 a3 sized platen, unsure of what I really want.
signage background.
want to have a play with 3/4 to 1'' rigid pvc - loose lettering
then figure out how to mill incised lettering at say a4 size in a block, screwing them to a back-board individually, gilding them -  then overlaying a clear acrylic sheet, that has been floated in black, but has the lettering cut out from it - in reverse -

My name is Paul Robinson. I own a small woodworking shop in northwestern Minnesota, Robinson Wood Furnishings. I just bought a new CNC to help me along and also give me capabilities that the "other guys" in the area don't currently have. I am new and lost. :D. I am on the very beginning of a long and hopefully successful journey. I got started by doing some odd projects for myself then explored a little more and so on. I was hired on at a local woodshop that wholesaled mantels to a local gas fireplace manufacturer. The guys I was working for wanted to get out of the business so I took it over in 2008. Within a year after taking the business over the company I was wholesaling to, quit producing fireplaces. It was either learn more, or quit. I went to the school of hard knocks and been going strong ever since. I work by myself, and have a buddy help me on installs when I need. So that's about it. Going on to the next adventure in building with CNC technology. That's about it.

Hey Paul......I have been around for about a year and have learning more than I knew I would need to learn.

The learning curve is steep but you can make it. 

I use a router and a plasma cutter on my machine I do several designs on rustic tables. 

Good luck......Let me know if you ever need my 2 cents worth.
