Hi,
I'm a computer programmer with interests in engineering, woodwork, electronics, embedded systems etc.

I've been interested in CNC for a while both as a means to expand my engineering and woodwork hobbies and also as the 'ultimate' computer peripheral.

I've currently got a rough and ready 'Rockliffe' design which is using 'proper' linear slides and acme screws.

I'm also considering the purchase and conversion of an X3 milling machine...

Steve.

That is a great start i look forward to seeing your machine, do you have a build log or some pics you could post in the DIY Build section ?

Thanks all for your kind welcome. I've posted pics in the relevant section - along with the relevant excuses ;)

I converted an X3 really happy with it now, after a lot of problems with Gecko's and servo motors. Still I have modifications to do but they are minor.
