View Full Version : Mentor/machinist wanted

05-18-2006, 03:14 PM
I would like to find someone in the U.S. that can help me design and build a homebuilt CNC router. Someone who can also machine parts for me if needed and instruct me on assembly of the unit.

I will pay for all materials, reasonable labor and shipping.

I want a machine that has a working travel area of 24" x 24".

Hello Cutloose: I am new to CNC, also am looking for some help. I have a tabletop lathe Cnc. If you locate someone, let me know. I don't currently relish the idea of driving tooo far. I live in Warsaw so. of 30. just south of you.. I have been retired 11 years and playing with machining the last four years. I also am a modeler, FLy-RC.. I have 2 machines, a 3 in 1 Smithy and a sherline CNC Lathe. Let me know if anything comes up. ELwiz

I'm in northwest IN, I could give you a little help or advice on the machining side of things. I'm not up on electronic controls though. I'm at 46307.

I'm in Edwardsburg, MI, just a couple of miles away !

Unfortunately, I'm also looking for a Mentor.

But if you find one locally, let me know. Or we could get together and try to figure something out.

I have a used Precix that only does HPGL, and I'd like to update it to GCode and Servo motors.
