Been reading a lot here and would really like to build one of Joes machines.
I'm a wood worker of sorts as a hobby and never have seen a CNC in action before. I sure can see many things I could use this for.
I Draw in Autocad everyday (last 20years) and can fix just about anything, always done all my own car work etc. I have a wire feed and gas axe to, I can weld a little if thats what you call it, its ugly but it sticks. I will say this project still looks over my head as I know squat about CNC.
I would like to know if there is somebody in the Mpls, Mn area that would not mind giving me a look at there machine and give me a push so I can start building one. Guess I'm looking for a mentor of sorts. I think a hands on experence would go a long way for me.
I live on the north side of town, near Anoka, MN.
If any of your fine fokes would be willing that would be great.
