I'm new to this here site, so i thought i'd better say hello. My name's Ed and I work for PT Engineers in Rugby. Im 27, a graduate DT teacher (dont ask!) working as a Turner/fitter, and am responsible for as much machine maintanence as we can manage in-house. Ive nearly finished rebuilding a 1951 Berthiez Vertical borer with an 8' table, and I'm half way through rebuilding a 1988 Carnaghi twin table vertical borer.
I learnt all my CNC here on Fanuc 5 and 15T controls, have had a dabble with Fagor and am currently trying to understand Siemens Sinumerik 3T. Im trained in Mastercam X2 which i use for programming on a regualar basis, but dont ask me about posts - its all double dutch to me!
I've been a model engineer for as long as i can remember, and have always had a workshop at home. Ive built a number of steam engines, and am the vice chairman of the Rugby Model Engineering Society.
Hopefully, dispite my lack of knowledge I'll be able to impart some help to others here...I'll do my best!
Welcome other fellow newbie!
