    2010 Digital Machinist CNC Workshop

    We are making progress in pulling together what will be the First Annual Digital Machinist CNC Workshop. The location and dates have been decided on at this time. I’ll post more details about the event when they are finalized.

    The location and dates are:

    Washtenaw Community College
    Ann Arbor, MI

    June 22 through the 25th 2010


    The workshop is a continuation of the one originally hosted by Roland Friestad at his shop in Galesburg IL. With Roland’s retirement and subsequent sale of his shop, he decided to pass the responsibilities along to us, though he will still be an important part of the workshop.

    We hope to make few changes to the format of the workshop. Our intention is to keep the focus on educational seminars geared to those interested in hobby and low cost CNC software, hardware, and use.

    We have had a great deal of interest from those hoping to give seminars and I think we will have an interesting mix of subjects.

    Hi George! Although the cnc workshop is still a good 6 months from now, I look at it as "Only 6 months more of a wait"!
    Not trying to rush anyone, but it would be nice to keep checking on the progress. As you well know, it gets pretty cold and snowy here in michigan, and it warms me up thinking about the workshop! LOL!!!
    I would like to participate as a lecturer and demonstrator as I have done in the past. In the past I have also "talked it up" on the various group sites, so any info would be greatly appreciated and passed along to the cnc guys. A website address would be a great help in starting the ball rolling.(maybe there is one already??) Anyway, I am really looking forward to the Workshop, the NAMES show (back in Michigan) and a new one coming to the Detroit area, the Makerfaire (July31-August1) at the Henry Ford Museum!!! Should be a great summer of fun and demonstrating!!! Thanks again for keeping the cnc workshop alive! Rick aka: Rickomatic, rickomatic2006@yahoo
