    Hi there yall,

    I've checked out this forum a few times and finaly decided to join up! I'm a CNC/General all round machinist from good old derby who has been in the game for around 13 years.

    My main background has been in milling 3/5 axis but i am also experienced in grinding, dynamic balancing, cmm inspection, and am currently employed as a CNC turner/ vert borer as i fancied a change and to brush up on my turning skills, plus it will help on the old c.v should the worst happen.

    For a young pup i've been around the block a bit having worked in the u.k and overseas chasing the money on the contracting circuit and have worked on more machines than i can remember so any questions about machining or various forms employment/self employment issues i would be glad to help.

    Thanks for reading.

    I'm new here too, and a much less proficient machinist than yourself. Are you planning to build a machine, or would that be a bit of a busmans's holiday?!!?

    I'm in the mackworth area by the way,
