Well, just wanted to let everyone know that I too will be purchasing an 1100 for a small business. Ive been reading these forums since 2010 and finally have the opportunity to take the step. I'm sure I'll be back regularly for questions and help, which seems to be very easy to find around here. This is one of the(if not the) best online communities I've ever been a member at and love reading the content on here. Ive been on 2 different atv forums, 3 street bike forums, 3 rc car forums, too many firearm related forums, and another big name machining forum(i wont mention any names since they dont allow it there). All of which don't compare to the community here in the Tormach forum. You guys are great and I look forward to participating and learning more.
That being said, I'm not a machinist, nor will I claim to be. Ive ran a manual machine before and understand many of the concepts and ideas, but this is a new ball park. I've learned from reading on here and soon will start the CNC Handbook. I'm very crafty with my hands and expect to do well learning and making parts with this machine.
Hope to talk(type?) with all of you more in the coming months and years! Thanks for all the great info thus far and hopefully I'm not on here too soon with questions
PS - I cannot wait to get this thing in my door!!!
