Just wondering if there is anyone in the Melbourne area willing to have a chat / meet to discuss options on retrofitting a bridgeport clone. I have a Chevalier mill, been in storage for some time now just waiting for a retrofit. Well, retrofit time is here and there seems to be a plethora of components to choose from, Gecko's, Chinese drives, CNC4PC, Machmotion, servos vs steppers etc. Looking for like minded individuals to exchange information about options available and hopefully hear some success stories.
Also, how do you find out about the CNC BBQ dates? I note there is one in FNQ in June this year. Wish I had known about these gab fests earlier. When is the next one in Melbourne? Is there any group meetings held to discuss all things CNC and bet on flies crawling up the wall
