    Glad to see you are on board BigTex. I think we can rustle up a few people and get a little meeting going. I hate to jump up front on getting this thing going, but I'm really interested in figuring things out sooner than later, and I rather be sooner.

    If you have any ideas let us know. Thanks.

    You guys are all welcome to come down to Dallas Makerspace. We're at I-35 and Walnut Hill. We have a meeting room that is open to the public, and we're open 24/7 to members. We're a solvent and stable organization dedicated to building and equipping a community workshop. We have several diy cnc projects among the membership, but we're just starting to make inroads into real machinist type equipment, thanks to a donation from Thomas Babb of the Denton Advanced Training Complex of a Colchester Bantam 2000 lathe. I need help setting up the lathe, so please come soon...:drowning:

    NTCNCUG

    Hey Guys,

    Here is a thought for our next meet up …

    Part 1:

    All those interested should attend the Woodworking Show in Ft Worth on Sat, March 9.
    Not so much on CNC but lots of general woodworking exhibits. Bring CA$H, you can actually buy stuff. Need that special router bit, they got em.
    We could meet up around noon for "lunch", or whatever.

    Part 2:

    Home in on March 23 or 30 for our regular meet up. Since the 16th is the end of spring break, it would be inconvenient for several of us family guys.

    The Woodworking Show should provide some incentive to have some serious CNC related discussions and presentations.

    Looking for Mentor north Dallas

    I am really interested in learning more about machining with CNC. My knowledge in such is mostly nil, but I would love to learn from an experienced user in the field. Any kind of experience would be awesome, actually. I just graduated high school and machining seems like a viable trade that I would like to learn. I have applied for an entry level drafter at Halliburton where my grandfather works but an apprentice or intern position is what I am really looking for.

    Have you looked into the program at Richland College yet?

    No, but definitely an option. I want to have as much hands-on experience as I can, mostly want to see if this will actually be something I truly want to further my education on.

    Make an appointment with and go visit Brian Flemming at Richland College. He is continuing to make improvements to the program with getting new machines and sponsors. The North Texas Chapter of the NTMA also offers a small scholarship for this program.

    I'm in Carrollton, TX. I've been working with CNC equipment (hobby not industrial) for several years. Not the brightest on what to do, but I'm and expert on what NOT to do. Would like to get together and swap lies..

    There is the Dallas Makerspace. They have meetings every Thursday at their location off Walnut Hill in northwest Dallas. Look at http://dallasmakerspace.org/. I have not made it over there yet, but still have good intentions.

    looking for some connections to learn CNC machining and general knowledge. Teaching myself CAD right now, and needing to get edumacated as much as possible on the practical end of things. Everything from machine basics to setup and programing in G code. Complete newb on CNC and VMC's so looking for anything to get my hands on as that is how I learn.

    N Plano/Frisco area, but can travel a bit. very flexible on times as well.

    Thanks
