Hi Guys
« on: May 11, 2008, 11:11:19 PM »
I'm 60 years old, and am a self tought machinist. I work for an electronics co., and design & build machines to build & test our own products. I've been working there for 24years, my hobby's are my HO train layout and building model steam engines. I roam on all of the machinist sites they are all very interesting and informative I hope your site works out like the rest of them. And THANKS for the help Eric in posting on the site GOOD LUCK

Again very cool. I am going to be in process of CNCing my mill and lathe within the next 3 months. I recently lost my job in IT @ a major financial institution... I don't plan on ever going back. I have started to manufacture motorcycle parts... CNC would make my 1 man basement shop that much more productive.
