Default Hello

Gary K. here to say hello. Recently moved from Santa Maria, California to Cumming, Georgia. In California I did some work on a Viccam CNC router and then mainly worked with a gentleman who had a ShopBot. Before using a CNC router, I made parts with a jig saw, hand drill and a router table. Then tried a water jet, but still needed the hand drill and router table. When I was introduced to CNC routing, I was amazed and continue to learn what they can do.

Now that I am in Georgia, interested in purchasing a CAMaster Panther or Cobra 4' x 8' eventually. In the meantime, I will be looking for a CNC service provider and would love to see some parts made on a CAMaster. Hoping the forum will help steer me in the right direction as well as offer some tips and I hope to have something useful to contribute as well.

Hello and welcome Gary. I'm down 400 and just off 285 near the river. Not a Panther/Cobra . . . Stinger II but fairly loaded. If you can stand a packed (and usually messy) garage shop, you're welcome to stop by . . . just need a day or two notice.

Jim: My dream/goal is to be building a boat by 2020. To be honest, my eyes have been on bluewater sail or trawler or some type of in between hybrid . So far proving to be a bit ambitious.


Happy Thanksgiving all.
