Hi,

As the title says, I'm new to this forum but haven't got a StepCraft yet - but I am looking!

The reason for the delay is having to move my current machine to make room for the new one!

I live on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border in the south of England and am looking forward to expanding/enhancing my 'maker' skills with a StepCraft.

I primarily make trinket boxes of various shapes and sizes, signs with inlaid panels for friends and family, but want to expand into 'unique' styles of joints for drawers, etc.

My original thread was posted so long ago, I completely forgot about it, but here's some progress:

I'm now the proud owner of a Stepcraft M.1000 CNC machine, with aluminium, MDF and vacuum table options, a Kress 1400 FME-P DI milling motor, semi-closed loop system, standard ball screws and LED lighting.

It came in kit form and, after a few minor issues with the build, it is now up and running really well.

For one reason or another I haven't been able to put it through its paces, but I'm learning through small, straightforward projects to transition from my old machine to this one. Come the New Year, I'll be back on the road to designing and producing me projects once again.

I can't wait :-)
