Hi This is my second attempt at getting accepted to the forum.
Don't know if I am being impatient but I would like to get started.

I've built all sorts of machines and gadgets over the years.
When it comes to cnc I am a complete novice but it fascinates me an I have to
build a machine of my own. This seems to be the place to get me on the right road.
If there is any thing I can help others with I will be only to happy to help.

Its starting to clear up now mate, our industrial estate is no fun no more as my sprinter drives in a straight line :P

are you planning on building a machine? Im currently building the Joes 4x4 htbrid which im very impressed with up to now

Aye I think the novelty of the snow has worn off a bit now.

The idea of a cnc machine has fascinated me for years and now the time seems right
to start one, don't know exactly what yet. Probably something small, A3 size see what is involved then maybe something bigger.

Is this your first build?

Sort of yeah, i started building a 8x4 router but go side tracked and ran out of hours. so 6 month down the line i gave up and bought one ha ha.

Try the rockcliff one for your first build i belive there not too bad! Lee the forum owner has one (Or he did)

Bit of a head up for you...... its buildinga cnc is not cheap and is addictive lol
