Mach users in your area
« on: November 06, 2014, 09:19:45 AM »
Edoctoor here...

I just finished my scratch built my 31 X 31 inch CNC machine and basic configuration of Mach 3
and I am wondering if there is a place on this forum for people like me to say.

"Hello I live in London Ontario Canada and would be interested in joining a Mach 3 interest group"

If you are wondering.... yes; you are correct.... I built a 31 X 31 CNC with NO WORKING KNOWLEDGE of CNC MACHINES or associated Software.
And yes, I am surprised that my cnc machine actually works. That said, I am a retired old man that loves a challenge and my next challenge is to
learn the tips and tricks to go from idea to a finished peace.

Currently I am confused with a some g-code and the Z axis plunging into the part after an hour of consistent routing.
I know that I will eventually discover how to do tool changes and the steps to setup a part but it would be nice
to know some people in my area that also have the same interests in hobby CNC machining.

I'm about 2 hours and another country away from you.
I'm not really aware of any Mach3 users groups that have local meetings, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

Then may I suggest creating a *sticky* find a local Mach friend in a Social area?

I posted a Mach 3 ad on Kijiji but haven't had any hits...

I did however post an ad on Kijiji about learning Mandarin and as a result I am engaged to be married ;-)

Anyhow, many thanks for your reply as I truly appreciate it !

This is a good idea. Most of the othwr forums that I am a member of (non-cnc) have something like this. One even has a map with a dot for everyone that input there location.

I live in Lebanon, Pa and would love to be able to talk and hangout with others interested in the CNC world.
