Not sure if this is old news, but I stumbled across this forum for machinist and it seems pretty informative. It is a nice mix of amature home made stuff and very profesional and HIGH dollar stuff. the people who do post remind me of here alot as they seem to be helpful and patient .It has a whole bunch on CNC and converting manual mills/lathes to CNC, but at the same time it has stuff on straight manaul machines as well as minis (harbor Freight type). I signed up but have yet to post as i am still looking for that one special mill that is waiting in the dark corner of a shop somewhere (read cheap and in good shape). anyway, I like it and thought I would share and see what you all think. www.cnczone.com shortcut to the forums www.cnczone.com/forums/index.php?
