Hi Robert,

A bit of extra info. You can download the LazyCam manual from the members documents section here http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,12078.0.html

thnx I studied the manual and the instructions and learned quit a bit thnx for the big help.
Now I realized that my LC. can not load all of the G codes. for instance, I write a word and it only loads just 1 letter which is to big or half of the letter.
Is this because of the free version I have or not? and if so, I will then purchase a full version of Mach and LC. But altogether right now I have given up.
LOL. I am fed up. Thnx for your efford to help me, I seem to be hopeless. hahaha. but no problem I am very good at Golf and tennis instead.

Come on Robert - Don't give up that easily.
Building your own machine was the hardest part - It's all plain sailing from now on.

You could try finding some DXF's that you like from this thread on the Zone http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19346 then using LazyCam create the GCode and start engraving stuff. Before you know it, your wife will be complaining that you have far too many place mats and coasters.  ;D

btw. You are certainly not the oldest guy who is just starting out on the world of CNC.
