Thread: Hello Everyone

    Hi Everyone,
    Just a few words about myself.
    A few years ago I decided to junk Dad's old horizontal mill and replace it with a small vertical mill - from Chester Tools UK ltd. After using the mill for a while I became intersted in motorising the X & Y axes, I built a PIC based controller to drive stepper motors on each axis. From this point I added a ball screw for the z axis, thrust bearings in the Y axis and then discovered EMC, built three driver cards and and an opto isolator interface and hey presto Home Brew CNC - Happy Days!
    Currently I'm building myself a simple dividing head.
