    HI,
    I am living in the West of Scotland. Having done some CADCAM work in the past and now having some free time thanks to the cwedit cwunch, I would like to aquire a small cnc mill/router to 'play with'.
    I am considering trying to build one but would much prefer to buy with a view of building a second one.

    I would like to see a homebuild machine running to see if its within my capabilities to build one. I would appreciate any invite to do so if their is anyone out there who is looking for an apprentice/audience.

    Colin

    Hi crazy horse, welcome to MYCNCUK. Please take the time to view the FAQ section for answers to questions you may have, if your building a new machine be sure to start a new build log detailing your progress !

    Welcome to the forum Colin, plenty of members north of the border on here so hopefully you should get a few invites. You could start by having a look through some of the build logs, you should be able to get a good idea of what others have done. You really need to decide what you want the machine for before you buy or build as this will have a big effect on the type of machine you buy or build.
