Hi as well ,
My build has been a long time coming as with most it was going to be relatively easy and as many I guess have found it is a challenge to say the least .I have been lucky to have great support close by Homann Designs  great product ,I however don't have the electrical prowess but I am learning slowly along with mach 3 I think I need the tutorials on disc so as to watch them again and again for the things I have missed I will get there ,cheers all.

Maybe I should have started here

My name is Henk and I am a tech freak, love working with my hands and creating stuff, cannot sit still and I have little patience when I need to do something and cannot for some or other reason beyond my control (very costly at times, LOL)

Anyhow, I started building a 4 axis CNC machine and was told (also read great reviews about) Mach3 as a CNC control platform, so here I am.

Have done lots and lots of reading, but I soon realised that if I had started by reading I probably never would have built a custom CNC machine (software part is a nightmare).

BUT, it's done now, so I have to continue, another costly trait, I cannot leave stuff incomplete!

Now onto business, very happy to see the wealth of experienced members here. Pretty sure I am at the right place and that I will grow and learn more than I expected here.

Might need to update my profile to include the specs of "EVO 1.I", thats what I call my build, "EVO" as in Evolution, don't ask, hehehehehe and "1.I" just extends the EVO part in that it reffers to version "1" dot "Infinity", yep it probably will never be "finished" there will always be something to change or add. So I know now that this membership is a long-term thing and I hope to get to the point where I too can be part of the furniture with the abilities of the experienced members here!

Great site!
When I die, will someone please dress up as the Grim Reaper and attend my funeral. No need to do or say anything, just attend and stand a short distance away? PLEASE???

Hi LGF,

Welcome.

You are not wrong, a homebuilt CNC machine is never truly 'finished' I completed mine (so I thought) 10 years ago and I am still adding stuff.  ;D

Thanx Tweakie

you seem like one of "them", the active "furniture" (konwledgeable) of the site!

Tell me something if you don't mind?

Is it normal to think you know what to do and then to be completely confused the very next moment you read something?

Hi LGF,

I think so.

This is one of the problems with life in general – the more we learn, the more we realise that there is so much more that we don’t actually know - the cycle is never ending.  ;D
