I happened to stumble across this book that looks like it would be helpful for me. I'm very new to this and am looking for books at Amazon and at the local library that will point me in the proper direction.
It's been years since I wrote any G-code, and I just got a Bridgeport V2XT.
Can anyone tell me whether this is a functional version, and if it has any limitations? It sounds too good to be true.
For those of you that don't want to follow the link.
