Hi all, My name is Mark.

I am by trade an electrical engineer, but by the grace of god I'm not to shabby as a mechanical engineer either. ( I spent a few years in a tool room, running manual millers and a large surface grinder).

From being a young child I have always been fascinated by internal combustion engines, especially 4 stroke types. I regularly repair and modify model engines, but I have had a real wish to start bulding my own engines. Multi cylinder radials and flats etc being my main ambition. This is were the logical interest in CNC comes in.

I am presently reaserching the best way to go about retro fitting a CNC system onto my Myford speed 10 Lathe and my Warco Major milling machine complete with 4th axis rotary table.

Hi Mark and welcome to the site. We look forward to seeing some of your engines. We have a couple of members with Warco Major mills that have been modded and I am in the planning of my Warco Minor (essentially the same beast, just a tad smaller). Is yours a Gearhead?

No, its one of the older models with belt drive.
