New people welcome !! Come in here and introduce your self!
« on: September 10, 2018, 12:19:39 AM »
  My name is Levanthai. I am new to cnc. and forums,  and ask for your patience while I learn my way around. I am 61 years old, and
have spent the last 40 years as a brick mason. I have allways had an intrest in woodworking,but my trade and it's physical demands left
little time or energy for it. I had a bad hip for years,and bought some woodworking tools(table saw,band saw,router,drill press etc.)
knowing that my bricklaying time was getting short. After a hip replacement I now have the time. Now for the reason that brings me
here. I would like to learn cnc to use in my hobby woodworking shop. I would like to learn to run MACH3 ( installed)in simulator mode.
Any help pointing me in the right direction for setting up,configuring,and running will be greatly appreciated.

                                                                                                                                     Thanks Alonzo

Hi,
welcome, I think you'll enjoy the learning curve if you take plenty of
'patience pills', bourbon is a close second....

Any reason that you prefer Mach3? I don't know whether you are aware but all development
on Mach3 ceased five years ago in favour of Mach4.

There are quite some people who don't like Mach4, they obviously don't have any patience pills
or facsimillie thereof, but it is superior in many ways although there is a learning curve involved.

Note that either or both can be downloaded and run in Demo mode for free and and long as you like.

Hi,
I notice that you are creating new threads rather than replying to an existing thread, its going to get really
confusing if you do that. If you see a post to which you wish to reply the hit <reply>,
not <new topic>.
