Just a line to say Hello.

Two CNC machines built so far, so perhaps I can help others just starting out.
Software used :- Mach3 and Flashcut.
Machines :- Emco 220 and an Emco F1

Hi Fisherjim,

Welcome to the forum. Just in the final stages of my first machine (SWMBO says last too). Decent bunch of people here and most of us could use a bit of expert advice.

I assume one of your machines is a plasma? That was to be my next project. Don't suppose you have any pictures or a build log to post.....;)

Regards, Jeff.

No, one is a Production Lathe with 8 tool toolchanger and the F1 is a small precision training mill.
I'll try to get some photos done.
I think a build log would take up rather a lot of space, each machine took me around 6months to convert and too much money to tell the wife about. Good experence though and trial and error a good teacher.
