hiya every one,

I am new to cnc but have been using a milling machine for a little while.
I build RC models and love details.

I am 36 and live in Waddington. I serve in the armed forces.

I have a little shed in the garden for my hobby. I own a axminster x2 milling machine which is the same as sieg x2 and a variety of others in different colours.

I find that people who machine parts for the hobby to sell do charge a large amount so it's something I want to do but at reasonable prices.

however I want to use CNC machining for personal use to build by models. I am currently building a RC excavaor in 1:14 scale fully hydraulic. I am not short of ideas and designs and more than capable of designing the parts just the manufacturing of these parts is lengthy and not terribly accurate.

I hope, in the future to set up a little company with the aim to build full models and parts at reasonable prices. I believe in quality and quantity and not the get rich quick road.

any how hope that you guys and gals can help me learn CNC

many thanks

rebekah anderson
