Hobbies & More

Finally found summut that sorta interest’s me hobby wise and I should be able to make some money off it too 🙂
I bought myself a CNC machine, a 6040 thing off eBay for a little over a grand, plus a kit version that’s got a 4′ x 6′ bed and gantry so once I’ve got the hang of it I’ll transfer the bits across to the kit and have a monster 🙂 I also bought a table router and a shedloada router bits and CNC bits – now all I gotta do is wait for it all to arrive. I’ve been mucking about with Aspire 3.5 a 3D CNC package and the more I play with it the more I realise me and wood may not mix, BUT I’m determined to sort it and have a real hobby.
The pic below is something I quickly knocked up in Aspire and I’m well chuffed and Aspire says it won’t take that long to machine out so digits crossed the CNC machine is as good as some people on the interweb have claimed.

Apart from the above I’ve not been doing much ‘cept mucking about with other designs and hiding from the shitty weather – although today it’s been pissin’ down so I’m a happy chappy, it tell’s me that Winter is on its way 🙂
