Thread: New member
Hi everybody, my name is Dave, i`m an old time machine tool builder and current motorcyclist. I enjoy any type of machining except cnc. which is way beyond me.I would rather turn the handles than press a keyboard.Looking forward to reading the letters.
bye for now Dave
Never been a fan of automated welcomes, it's lazy.**
Anyway, to MAIPISH, welcome to the forum, not sure what you will get from it, you being a dinosaur and all but maybe we can turn you to the dark side before we are through :D:D.
And no, it is not beyond you, really it isn't. If I can do it, so can you, you are a machinist, you obviously can use a computer so you are 50% the way there!
**(only kidding Lee, I'm sure you are hard at it, whatever "it" is);)Nothing is foolproof......to a sufficiently talented fool!
Hi Dave, thanks for joining. I think you will be at home here as we have other members who machine by hand as well.
The auto msg is on my list of jobs to update and make better/good for all new members but like you said i'm "hard at it, whatever "it" is" so it will be changed at some point..Me

Thanks for all the welcome messages,i look forward to being converted from a dinasoar to a `lazy machinist` but in the mean time i must try t keep the grey matter up to speed. Looking forward to reading all the progress reports on cnc machine builds etc.cheers dave.
Surely it`s the machine thats busy, not the engineer who is actually drinkng tea.but as stated previously i look forward to being converted,but not so that i can waste time drinking tea!
