Thread: Hi from Leigh Lancashire.
Hi my name is kev and i live in Leigh Lancashire.
I'm just about to entry the world of milling.
At the moment i do a smithy combo lathe/mill but really fancy investing in a better milling machine.
I do like the look of the Warco VMC machines.
Hoping to be able to purchase one with x,y axis power feed and a 3 axis DRO with the intentions of converting to CNC in a few years.
I know that i have a massive learning curve ahead of me and just didn’t want to buy a CNC machine that i have no knowledge of that's until I've learnt some of the fundamentals of milling first.
My knowledge of Milling is pretty low and i ‘m looking forward to talking to some of you good people and hoping to learn a great deal for the forum.
Going to hold back on the purchasing of a new milling machine until I've manage to find my way around the forum, i wouldn’t like to get it wrong and find myself needing to buy and different machine several months down the line.
hi from little hulton
what will you be using the mill for ?
Hi Sam I've been making a few electronic ecig box mod out of aluminium but I've never been able to add a decorative touch to them nor have i been able to duplicate any.
you dont need a VMC mill to do that kind of work, you can do it all on a cheap desk top router cnc.
this is 1.5mm brass cut on mine
Which desk top cnc router do you have Sam?
I would really like to take you up on that offer if possible Sam please.
Am i local to you.
yes your just down the road.
