    Welcome thread-tell us about you.

    I was looking thru the list of users and was shocked to see that 3/5th or more of the members have ZERO posts.

    I'd like to say WELCOME to all the new members, and to the old members that haven't posted.

    I'd also like to extend an offer for you all to chime in and say hullo, mayhaps tell us what you do, how you're involved in CNC etc. We'd love to hear from you!!

    Hi All,
    I'm a CNC newbie and have just been absorbing some of the information in the "Zone". I'm designing my first CNC router and am trying to gleen ideas from some of the fine machines I've seen here!
    I have a question concerning the use of UHMWPE or delrin as a linear bearing (drilled and reamed to a class 2 running fit), is this possible, what might be a problem?
    Thanks for this forum, best wishes and no crashes to all!
    Later,
    Ed

    From some of the PM's I get, it seems we have many "lurkers" who feel more comfortable "one on one". As long as we are having fun and maybe even learning a few things!

    I wish it wouldn't crash.

    Hi All

    I am an experienced CNC programmer proficient with MasterCam, Surfcam and have used others, I was an outcast from Crankys little forum. For wanting to share building ideas that used the rollerblade and black pipe desiigns he took this as a threat and promptly banned me just before he went private. I must give him the credit for motivating me to finish a machine. I had lost interest in. I spend a good bit of time here just watching the newbies evolve. The group has done a graet job motivating people keep up the good work. BTW Have a look at my website to see some of my work although needs to be updated
    www.freewebs.com/raysplace

    Peace :-)

    That's a nice website.

    Where did you get the plans for the controller board?

    Rekd it may be like one individual just this week related to me about the Zone! Intimidation may have a large part to do with it.

    The problem this particular individual had was that he felt that he was kinda being ingored because he has to come to believe this site is "just for professionals". I told him that the single largest forum on this site is used by folks that build their own cnc machines. Any suggestions as to how to get this fellow and all the non posters involved?

    Very good point! I'll think about it. Mayhaps something in the logo or title or somewhere insinuating that it's for Professionals and Beginners alike! A place to find answers and get different opinions.

    Thanks for the tip
