View Full Version : NEW MEMBER: It's now officially a hobby!

Entered the industry many years ago as a field service engineer for Bryant Grinder.
I learned a lot about “flat, square and parallel” then and even learned to hand scraped beds.
Then moved into the semi-conductor industry. Sill working on precision motion control systems and robots.
Now disabled and looking to use my skills and knowledge and become a garage machinist, when I can. I know I need something to occupy my mind and this should fit the bill. I have the ability; I just need to learn the jargon, tips and tricks.
As such I am on the lookout for a small mill, new or used, that I can accurize and eventually CNC it.

Hi there and welcome to the site. Strangely small mills rarely come up on eBay second-hand. I would suggest homeworkshop.org but as you are in the US that's not a lot of help to you...
