I suppose I am not doing this right but I wanted to introduce myself like some other sites like you to do....
Hello everyone ! My name is Gary Sheets . I am a retired machinist in eastern Iowa
and I have decided to join some of these machinist community blogs . I retired in 2010
after 40+ years machining on production lathes and mills ( all cnc after the mid 80's ) .
I was tired ! After about 3 months retirement I found out I needed a triple heart bypass .
FYI it takes awhile to bounce back from those . Lately I have been amusing myself by
trying to fabricate a small desktop size cnc milling machine, the goal being to make a
machine capable of doing useful work while being assembled from the most economical
parts possible .This envolved a lot of time on the pc trying to understand the electronics
part of it . The going has been slow due to money flow after the operation and living on
ss. So far I have worked out the design and have most of the parts gathered for it . I
hope to start assembling it soon . I can keep you posted on the progress if anyone is
interested . Perhaps upload some pictures .
Also if anyone is looking for some great deals on precision measuring equipment
let me know what you need . There are a lot of things here . I probably have it for a
very low price . I just want to recoup some money , not looking for profit .
BTW this is my first attempt to post online so please excuse any screwups .
Thanks for listening,
