Hi All:
My name is Jim Knee (yes Knee), from Newfoundland Canada.  I bought a mini lathe a few years ago to try my hand making a few parts for my RC hobbies.  Little did I realize at the time what a learning curve there would be to actually make good usable parts.  I gained a great admiration for machinists and got hooked on the whole metal machining scene.  I recently got myself a Grizzly 0704 clone and in the process of converting it to 3 axis CNC, using Mach3 of course.  Looking forward to expanding my hobby machining capabilities.

For the past 30 years I have been involved with Electrical / Instrumentation type work and have a fair bit a experience programming PLCs and other machine level gear.  The electronics and programming side of the CNC work reminds me of other things I've worked on in the past.  I also have a pretty good background in AutoCAD so that will certainly come in handy as well.

Nice to be part of such a diverse and knowledgeable group.

I've been doing a fair bit of lurking for the last month or so, just until I had my mill working properly and a vague grip on CAD/CAM basics - mainly from finding my way around various free and demo software packages.
I've taken the plunge and purchased Mach3 and BobCad/Cam and am now slogging slowly up that learning curve whilst trying to avoid getting too excited about what I might be able to do once basic competence is achieved ;-)
ATB,
Nick

Hello,
My name is Mike. I am a helicopter pilot by profession and have a home shop with a Smithy 3-in1, a 2400 degree foundry for casting aluminum, brass, etc and I have a 4x4 CNC Plasma table running Mach 3. I am still trying to get my plasma table dialed in and am glad I finally got around to joining this forum. I have some questions and will be looking for some information.
I would like to thank everyone in advance for sharing their knowledge and experience!

Thanks, Mike
