Thread: Hello from Hampshire
Ive been playing with cnc machines since 1998, when I first purchased a Shopbot machine, 4 foot by 3 foot and 7inch on the Z.
Since then I have run a SCM pratix 48 for one yacht builder on the Southcoast, I then moved on to another yacht builder and currently program for a Homag Weeke machine.
All cutting timber and the odd mould tool from Sika Block all in 3 axis.
Currently I don't have my own machine having sold it a couple of years ago to make room for another project and I don't see me getting another for a couple of years, when I do it will be roughly based on a Mech Mate , still I'm thinking of making a five axis machine, small ( say 2.5 mtrs by 1.3 mtrs by 600mm high ).
That's about it really.
Busy at work programming using CATIA, Autocad, Alphacam and Woodwop.
I dont run the machine any longer as I have taught others to do that, although I still borrow the machine to make the odd part here and there. Miss having my own at home. best regards Andrew.
Hi Andrew and welcome to the site. Sound like you're an experienced hand at this :lol: I'm sure you have lots of knowledge to impart...
Hello and welcome, Your just over the water from me."If first you don't succeed, redefine success"
