    There is just too much info out there and too many newbie questions! It would be great if a kind soul in NE Atlanta had a Sphinx or OX or similar mill and would be willing to spend a couple of hours in a STRICTLY PLATONIC, NON CREEPY mentoring session!!!

    Hi SKYBUCK.

    I am not a "mentor", but I DO live in NE Atlanta. Berkeley Lake to be more definitive in a city called Duluth.

    I am brand new to CNC, but I have been studying videos for months and I have learned a "bundle". Still a novice for sure.

    I am planning to build a modified KYO Sphinx CNC that will be incorporated into an existing Legacy Ornamental mill. I am very excited by this. My mill has 3 Axis but is semi automatic and NOT CNC controlled. It has only one motor on the X axis which is 84" long. Y would be 18" wide and Z is about 6" up and down height. So when I integrate the CNC into my mill; it will give me not only the 3 CNC axis, but it will also add two more axis'. One for turning and the other for Tapering. Again I am very excited about this.

    Note: The existing top rails will be removed and replace them with "OpenBuilds" C-Beam rails for "X" axis; that will support the Sphinx Gantry and the other 2 CNC axis (Y and Z). See below:

    I would be more than happy to "chew the cud" with a person interested in CNC mills.

    If I am not the person you are looking for, I fully understand.

    In any case, may Jesus richly bless you and yours always, dear person,

    pat

    A mentor is similar enough to a friend.

    Wanna come over and play? On 11/5/2017 works for me if it works for you.

    FYI.

    While my phone line has texting capability, my cordless phones do not have it.

    Thus I need for you to call me
