As I have been signed up for some time but not posted I tought I would be best to say hello.

My name is Mark, but I have been given the name Mad Professor meny years back with some of the stuff I end up making.

I am based on a little 25x20mile island floating around near southamton / portsmouth.

For some time now I have been playing with the idea of building a small CNC mill to help aid building PCB and small items that might need to be milled.

I already have 4 stepper motors and a 36ish volt 10amp power supply, and a simple DIY drive board.

I am sure that you will see a number of questions from me shortly.

Thanks for your time.

Best Regards.

Kip: now how did I know someone would have to give me that bit of advice, oh yer been told that before.

If I am unable to build or program my own pic driver board then I will be indeed looking at buying driver boards.
