    Hi,
    I'm a computer programmer with interests in engineering, woodwork, electronics, embedded systems etc.

    I've been interested in CNC for a while both as a means to expand my engineering and woodwork hobbies and also as the 'ultimate' computer peripheral.

    I've currently got a rough and ready 'Rockliffe' design which is using 'proper' linear slides and acme screws.

    I'm also considering the purchase and conversion of an X3 milling machine...

    Steve.

    I converted an X3 really happy with it now, after a lot of problems with Gecko's and servo motors. Still I have modifications to do but they are minor.
