Hello there folks

Postby PitchPine » 30 Nov 2019, 22:42

Hi everyone,

I’ve lurked on the site a bit recently and you all seem a very friendly and knowledgeable bunch, I hope you’ll have me!

I’ve worked with my hands using many materials since a young age, but love the smell and feel of raw timber. Most of what I do at home is done using hand or basic power tools, but I use CNC gear at work.

Here’s a few pieces, be kind!

I’ve come here for a bit of technical help with a project I’ve been putting off for a long time - will start a special thread on that one.

Ah-ha, the wonders of CNC...

Like a lathe that spins the work slowly while a router bit goes over the top.

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum :)

One more post and the moderator thing will be gone.

I used to work with CNC metalworking machines and have just started looking at home CNC router systems. Completely undecided at the moment even as to if I really want one and what I'd do with it if i did have a CNC. I know back at work what the CNC could do drove the design solution so maybe that would work at home too. Hmm

Hi Robert,

I agree, once you get yourself into a CNC ‘mindset’, just because you have the equipment, you often miss an easy solution...

I like to use hand tools at home as a break from it!

It can also be fun to add the odd hand tooled feature to one-off CNC parts, to boggle brains looking at it from the other perspective.
