Hi

Just found your site through Google.

Don't know if this is the right place, but I'm going to have a search through your forum. I was trained as a fiitter, and used those old fashioned lathes and milling machines many years ago. After a few unrelated jobs, I fancy retraining, and having a change in career. So, I'm looking for info on training, advice and help to get started.

No doubt I'll be pestering with my daft questions!

Cheers:beer:

Hi John

Don't be put off by the automated welcome message, we all got that :rolleyes:

The wonder of CNC is that you can cut curves without a rotary table, the difference is you do all the work before you cut any metal, the learning curve is the software and G-Code, the misery is figuring out what went wrong when for no apparent reason your circles become elipses, the finish is a crock of whatsit or the tool shatters and ploughs off in an unpredictable direction mangling everything it's path :beer:
best
