Hi my name is Benny, the dumb name I have as my forum name is benny spelt backwards. For some reason it has stuck.
I live In Melbourne Australia. I have been into CNC for a couple of years now, and love the fact that a personal computer can drive a CNC machine. Hence my involvement with Mach3.
I have built two CNC router tables now, and get a kick out of seeing a machine that I built, actually cut something. Its a constant thrill for me. ( But then again I am easily amused. )
BENNY, Barry, I amm very interested in your set ups, as I am very new to this process, at least we live in the same country, for ease of local materials, can you help me with what you used    B

Barry please start a new topic rather than asking  in the introducing thread, you will get a lot more help that way as not everyone reads this and it is meant just as an introduction thread rather than for  asking questions.

Hello Everyone,

Hi,
My name is Hamilton, I live in Ireland. I bought a manual Sherline Lathe a few months ago and been having great fun with it. I now realise that on a lathe you can only make limited things. I also have a friend who wants some items made for the photography field and to do them I need a mill. So I have taken the plunge and ordered a CNC ready Sherline 5410. The Gecko G540 unit came by Fedex today. I am amazed at how small it is!! So the steppers and mill should appear over the next few weeks. I have an old Toshiba 4600 Laptop so I put Mach 3 on it and I'm getting an excellent rating with driver test. Does that mean I should get satisfactory results with Mach3? I spent a while optimising it (I'v been in IT for over 40 years) so I'm hopeful, but if not I'll find a desktop around here somewhere. I would love to hear from anybody else in Ireland working with Mach3.

Thank you for letting me join the forum, I am a cnc setter programmer by trade but have been made redundant. I have a denford star4 lathe and a denford star mill and I am trying to get them working on mach3, but have a lot of problems hope to get some advice from the forum. My hobby is making live steam engines, and I live in St Austell Cornwall. Regards Micky Hobbs.
