Im a new member to the forum and new to CNC, Based in the UK. My machine is a Hobbymatt BFE65 which we converted to full CNC a couple of months ago as introduction to CNC work. Other than machining i have restored old British motor cycles in the past and still own a 73 Norton and a 09 BMW.

Hi,
I'm a new member to this forum and new user of mach3. I have limited experience with CNC control however will endeavour to make use of the knowledge made available here in order to catch up. Currently I have a plasma torch attached to servo driven x and y axes. The servos are controlled using an ethernet connected smooth stepper and breakout board. The plasma moves as required however I am still having trouble with some elementary steps within Mach3.
Look forward to many tips, suggestions and comments from you all.
cheers,
Coogan

Another new guy here, a hobbiest.

I've spent the last year buying (the parts for) and building a 3D printer. The printer works, is relatively accurate, it wasn't 'that' expensive and best of all taught me a lot!

When I first heard about 3D printing (interview with the guy that started Makerbot) I was sold on the idea.  A few weeks later after combing the internet I found an 'Instructables' tutorial on how to build your own 3D printer/CNC router combo and I set off to buy parts. 

Here I am today with a working printer and lots of questions on how to make it better.  I still plan on making this a convertable tool (printer/router) but the router part will happen after the printer has been tweaked to my satisfaction.

I will be watching the 3D printer area for anyone with questions about building their own printer - I'm not an expert but I am glad to share what I know!

Hello
New Guy.
Have been doing Maintenance work for the past 27 years working on Lathes Mills & Grinders of different makes and Models. I am now helping a friend with a project involving Mach 3 control Software and a Bridgeport Mill. Am having a few issues getting the Spindle to run. Will be asking for some help.
Just wanted to say Hi for now!

I am back after a 5 year vacation from my CNC machine. Called BobCad for a version update. (I know everyone loves the endless phone calls from them) $1,600.00 for the update, about s***t my pants. paid $2,500.00 the first time. After 3 weeks of training it worked very well.

I am retired & love CNC machines, cant get enough of the fun of making stuff.

Get to the point...... Has anyone here made a handgun (1911 pistol) or any other like AR 15 ect.

My son is thinking of taking an online gunsmith course & I may buy him a CNC for parts ect. Anyone here ever take or know if the online courses are any good?

Thanks for any help. This forum is the best Ive seen for CNC questions. I know you will come thru with excellent advice.

Thanks
Ron

Hello, I am a hobby CNC user.  I have a 20 Yr old son who is my partner in crime in this endeavor.  He got us both hooked on this fun when he was on a FIRST robotics team. When our Garage Mill (1984 Kitamura MyCenter0) blew out the old Fanuc main board I started the retrofit project that was planned all along.  I have a Centroid / Ajax control going in.  Learning a lot through the process.  I am lucky enough to live in the Detroit area where there is access to a hardware at reasonable prices. Always thankful for the expertise that folks are willing to share.
