A couple more snippets of info:


Around 90% of users only use around 10% of their machines capabilities. (Design and operation) In some cases this due to lack of need, but in the majority it is due to a lack of knowledge and training. One of the downfalls of being self taught.

Having visited hundreds of shops performing service/training calls, most operators had a wish list of items they wish their machine would or could do. In all but a few of these cases, the control was capable, they simply hadn't learned the proper commands.

Remember: Your design and control software can do much more than you think! Learn to "think like your machine" to reduce frustration and increase enjoyment, productivity and project quality.**


** (They don't think, but do require adherence to a strict set of operational procedures)

Nothing on the books at present, but we are always looking to vet new locations.

I can only offer the same advice that was given to me .....practice..
And then,,,more practice...

There is no "EASY BUTTON", I was told..!!
So I bit the proverbial bullet and worked at it till it became second nature.

Your model is not that complicated.
After a few attempts at cutting the actual model and a modest pile of scrap firewood,,you'll do just fine.
