my name is phill, i work in a job shop in troy, oh. currently program the cnc's and design fixtures and whatever else. anyway i've been reading the posts and found them very helpfull, so i decided to join the fun. now the good stuff.
my shop currently has a haas tm1 and tl1 plus a kia (morei-seki copy)va40 open machining center w/fanuc m6 control.
i've been a manual machinist for about 10 years total and just got the opportunity to program cnc's about 2yrs ago and really diggin it
well just stopped in to say hi, now gonna read some posts talk at ya later.
There are a lot of us from Ohio here. I have a TM1 also, no CNC lathe but I am slowly working on that. Been doing the CNC thing about 2.5 years now and so we are both relatively new to this, it does get in your blood.

Hi. I'm fascinated by the amount information a person can pick up on here, however the majority of it seems to be in favour of milling. I'm fairly new to cnc programming but have been turning for about 8 years now on capstans and wickman multi spindle auto's. Are there any others in the same frame as me, and are there any English setters/programmers out there?
Got herberts in the other part of workshop but don't really get to go on them too much. Occasionally I get a chance to go back to the real machines but most of my time is spent on cnc's now.Also got a nasty colchester dlectronique mastiff which drives me up the wall.
