Hey, Peter here in Maryland USA.  Got a CNC machine on a 5'x10' table in my shop.  Bought 8 months ago and worked great til computer failed. Reloaded Mach3 - have basic movement now but would really like to hire someone that could come to Gaithersburg MD to tweak and get a few things like Auto Z all up and running.  Please let me know.

Hi everybody!  Brand new to CNC and joining for all the help I will probably need!  I run a small, at home handgun grip business and will be using the new 3axis machine running Mach 3 software.

Hi Guys,
I have been a member since 2009 and just realised I haven't taken the time to introduce myself. My apology for this fopar.
Im am a Ex Army(Australian D.O.D) Apprentice Fitter and Turner(graduated), specializing in heat treatment, gear cutting and metrology, with a side order of CAD.
I have spent 20+ years writing and programing in Assembly, and VB as well as some minor DOS languages. I taught VB and ICT in College for two years and currently run my own Computer Business.
I typed/punched cards programs for CNC(if you could call them that) machines then tapes etc etc for 5-6 years way back when ;D. In 2009 I bought my own Milling machine and decided to CNC retrofit it.
Hence the reason I'm on here. Since that time the mill has had Ball screws fitted, HobbyCNC Pro driver Board with Mach3 cONTROL SOFTWARE. I make, design and build Race engines, gearboxes and chassis in my spare time (what there is of it lately)for my family and friends who all race in one category of motorsport or another. And yes we have national and State titles in most.
The mill has been a godsend for small intricate parts and punching out quick change gears for gearboxes etc. I work in materials ranging from Plastic through Aluminium, Brass, Carbon steel to more excotic Alloy steels and Chrome Molly Steels.
Id like to take the time to thank everyone who has helped me get the mill up and running over the years. And yes changing from one machine type of GCode to another has caused me a generous loss of hair and Mill bits over the years :(

Hey gang! Bear here.

Mark here in Knoxville. Retired Boeing guy from Seattle. I built a CNCRouterparts system, http://www.cncrouterparts.com/pro4896-4-x-8-cnc-router-kit-p-253.html and am trying to get the spindle to turn. i can get the G-Code to move and draw the Road Runner but i cant get the spindle to take in a RPM setting. I get a flashing yellow light around the Spindle Speed box, where should i post that.

I have finished design and construction of a Computer Numerical Controled (CNC) router. I did a lot of research on the net first. I used Sketchup for my drawings. The router is based on the design of Patrick Hood-Daniel except it is 4x4 feet verses his 2x4 feet. The table is based on the Kreg Workbench, Sketchup Video and attached to the x axis of the CNC router the way it was done by Kyle's Woodworking. My son Scott provided a junk computer with a good power supply, which I am using to house the electronics and provide low voltage. Table and Electronics estimated total cost is $800 including Mach3 software. I had some items on hand in my garage.  Used NEMA 23 motors but X axis was too slow so I replaced motor with NEMA 37 at additional $100.  I have completed a number of projects and it has been a learning experience. There is one thing I haven't figured out yet.  System does a good job at cutting out projects.  displays, joging all seem correct, however when I cut a project the x and y axes are interchanged and it cuts at 90 degrees from where expected.  sls4s

Hi my name is kevin and my precix controller is being re built into a windows based machine running mach 3.. I have numerous issues with three phase power concerns as i had added a traviani 20 hp vacuum pump on to my three phase converter and it damaged my cnc controller. So now  I need to figure out how to get it running again (seperate digital three phase converter to run just the cnc or a transformer?) and then learn to run Mach 3.. Looking forward to getting some help here..THANKS!!

Hello, my name is Scott I am new here to this forum,  I came across it by looking into a table top cnc for home.  I run a large cnc for work which uses Alphacam, Zylog Plus, and cabinet vision.  Now I want a cnc at home so shopping for cnc and software options.
