That's awesome James! Does it run on G code?

Yep it uses G-code I will have to learn how to use the control (Yasnac MX-1) it will be a bit different than the Haas I use to run. G-code may sound mysterious but its actually fairly simple to understand the basics. g1=straight line g2=radius to the right and g3=radius to the left These are the most common commands and are universal. The other codes used most frequently are turning the spindle on, coolant on, or doing a tool change and these very from machine to machine. I hope I can get it up and running asap. I just don't have the cash to throw at it yet

I'd like to learn G code. The campus to do that is 45 minutes away and I don't think I could do that for 16 weeks.

well if you just want to mess around virtually

hand coding is still a pita as far as I am concerned I would much rather use CAD/CAM when possible. Being able to read it does come in handy when debugging and code optimizing though.

The best part besides the $1500 price was the fact it was so close. I rented a forklift drove it to the guys house then forked it the 4 miles back to my house. (as farm equipment?) Now I just need some parts and a RPC 15-20hp should do the trick. It looks small in the pic but thats about 6500lbs or so of iron. Hea LaxPro You ever figure out your RPC situation? HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I got a 15 piece 5C collet set today. It is for the lathe that I will be moving into the workshop as soon as Monday.

I found a small CNC mill and I'm taking the plunge. It has a demo version of Mach3 which is 500 lines of code. Out of curiosity, how far will that get me? Just wondering what I will be able to do while I do a few intro projects.

Depending on exactly what you are trying to do, anywhere from completed parts to not much.

3d swoopie stuff takes a lot of code. Simple, non compound curves and straight lines are only single lines of code.
