Hi everyone. I bought a secondhand, hand-built CNC router machine not so long ago, with the view to starting up my own small business. I am a complete novice to CNC but I thought I would be able to learn it easily enough(how wrong I was!!!!). Now desperately looking for help setting it up(I am in Lincolnshire...postcode is LN9 5ND) as I am out of work now and have a family to support. I would be really grateful if anyone can help via this thread or if living close to me, would pop by and help me out???

It is a fixed gantry CNC machine
Overall dimensions
Wide 800mm, deep 900mm, height 1450mm
Cuts approx 500mm x 400mm
Components are:-
Nema23 keling motors on all axis
Controller gecko G540
Running Mach3 program

Many thanks,
Al.
