Thread: Hello - total newbie!
As the title would suggest, I am a total CNC newbie, with plans to convert a yet-to-be-purchased lathe to CNC operation. The basic idea is to fabricate odds and sods for my hobby, which is restoring and modifying cars and bikes.
In 'real life' I work in IT, mostly in databases, but have some programming experience. Linux and Perl.
I have lots of tools and a 'get stuck in' attitude which have served well so far.
I have a 3yr old girl, and a boy on the way, so time is limited and progress will be slow!
Love the build threads on the forum and and associated YouTubes!
Be prepared for lots of noddy questions from me (some so noddy that internet searches so far haven't found the answers - so they must be so noddy that nobody feels it's worth documenting the answers!) - please be gentle!
Welcome to the forum Eggs.... I think there's somebody on the forum from Tunbridge Wells which is around your neck of the woods..
No question to dumb or daft and it will have been asked I promise you that.!!
If your just 2% unsure of anything then ask.!

Thanks guys - already found some 'partial' answers! Thanks again - sure I'll be reaching out, and cool to have guys local. I'm probably more northern than most on here, having been born in Carlisle (just the right side of the border ;-) ), but been a shandy drinking* southern wuss for most of my life :).
* not really - I'm an ale man by choice...
Hi Eggs, You'll Find this lot Scambling to assist, Irrespective of accent or Geographical impediment (Not looking towards Jazz honest! cos I want to pick his brainz ).
It's Great being a Newbie, Where taking over the world with over enthusiastic froth.
A quick wit and an affinity with with arts of sarcasm go hand in hand when you wear body armour for a living.
I just need to learn the art of CNC, and I'll be on my way to CNC-Ninjadom, and global domination of my Garage.
