The Evolution of my Machine
« on: May 13, 2019, 04:16:54 PM »
A few months ago, I decided I wanted a CNC Machine. I knew nothing about them, but my intention and determination has paid off. I learned so much through the process and am thrilled with the results.

Thanks! It's been quite a ride. I love your quote because nothing could be more true.

If interested, there's more about my "failures" on Facebook.

Nice! I love it when a plan comes together.  :)

I'm curious, having gone from 0 to hero in just a few months what would you say was the toughest part?

Having done it and on the other side now, what do you think is the most important thing others considering doing the same should know going in?

I'd love to know what advice you would give others coming from where you were and wanting to get to where you are now.

Have sent you a Personal message.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
