Congrats on the new Stinger! You will absolutely love your machine. Now the hard part...waiting for delivery. Good time to look over the Vectric tutorials to get a head start. It may be a bit early now, but when you get your new machine, Gary Campbell has an excellent one on one course over the phone on g code, macros and understanding the data on your wincnc screen. I highly recommend it. You can send Gary a pm for more info.

Welcome to the group! Looking forward to seeing what you make.

Thanks for the welcoming, Gentlemen. I ordered SR-23 with 1 HP spindle, FTC, Laser, counter balance, Wincnc, aspire. I also ordered the custom built stand. I’m just a backyard hobbyist but I think this machine is going to be awesome! Mr. Joe I’ve already chewed my nails to the bone just in the two days of wait. Thanks for advise about getting head start on the Vcarve program and once machine is set up I’ll get in touch with Gary about some one on one tutorial. Thanks again!!

Welcome aboard and happy you have joined an outstanding group in my opinion. I have found this forum to be full of upstanding individuals that give and give freely. As Uncle Charlie said, "CNC will change your world!". It certainly has changed ours.

Looking forward to seeing more posts from you!
