Hi Alex,

Welcome to the forum.

Sounds like you will be having exciting times with your new venture - don't forget to post some pictures of the things you make (we all love pictures).

Hi Tweakie, yes exciting times ahead. I will be a regular on the forum as its good to talk and share. Really excited at what lies ahead, and i will share my progress.

I used to love working the sabre 404, but that was for someone else, which restricted me. Now im in charge of my machine, and as they say the world is my oyster lol.

regards
alex

Hello, my names alex wight and I'm from Lochgelly fife scotland.

I have just went self employed in January of this year, after 2 years of doing a job as a gas engineer and setting up my business, i took the leap of faith.

Ive started supplying the racing pigeon world with nest boxes, feeders, baskets perches ect, which has kept me very busy.

I have a purpose built cnc routing machine being built for (lack of time to build myself), which is due for delivery any day now.

I intend covering a wide range of areas with bespoke unique woodcrafts.

I,ll be looking for great ideas that are very different to what you normally see.

I have a customer who wants to use me for that very purpose, and I'm also keen on being involved in doing contract work.

I look forward to going through the site for advice and guidance along the way.

Although i have used a sabre 404 machine, this one I'm getting is MINE lol

regards alex
Good to see another Fifer on board. Welcome Alex.

Hi All,

I'm new to Mach 3.  I've been around the cnc world for a number of years doing work for other companies, mostly programming and machine operation.  I finally bit the bullet and purchased a small cnc router, (4' x 5' with a 12" Z and a rotary axis.)  Now the fun starts. 

I don't know if this is the right place to post a question but I'll do it anyway.

I've been running initial tests on the machine and I've gotten as far as doing a fixed contour milling operation.  Basically I created a surface that is a sine wave with a .50" peak to valley range vertically and 1.00" peak to valley distance along the Y axis.  So I'm basically runing the tool along a contour.  The problem is the motion is jerky.  I've worked with other machines and controllers that have a code, (they vary with machines) to smooth out motion.  I've played around with the motor tuning but it doesn't seem to have an affect.  What am I missing?

Thanks,
Dean

Fresh Mach3 user (and CNC for that matter) Catching on fast! 
I am accomplishing things I have been wanting to do for years. Problem is I have gained 10 pounds, found myself putting tape around the nose piece of a pair of glasses and seeing a pocket protector from a useful piont of view. ;D
