Ok, the details are mostly worked out and the official announcement is
on the HomeShop Machinist web site, see
The short version is that we have made a group purchase deal with Little
Machine Shop for 10 of their new high torque mini mills, and with
CNCfusion for their ballscrew conversion kits. We also have all the
electronics, stepper motors, smoothstepper, gecko540 etc and the Mach3
We have limited it to 10 students, and at least 3 are already signed up.
You will get the entire kit of parts, registration at the CNC workshop
for all 4 days and all events, for less than the street price of the
parts. You will only pay for shipping from the workshop to your home-
free if you drive to the workshop and take it home with you.
We will have a formal class each day to work on the machine, then you
will have time to attend any of the seminars, or visit the exhibits. By
the last day your machine will be running, tested, and ready to make parts.
Brian Barker will lead the day on installing and running Mach, so you
may even be able to get his autograph :-)
For all the details see the HomeShop web site. There is reasonable
housing, even dorm rooms.
