  1. Great vid! It should be included in all internationally sourced CNC machine shipments. (I bought a EJ6090…everything was in Chinese!)

  2. In the 1980's CNC machines were new technology running on Commodore computers the machinists need to learn G code to troubleshoot new programs and make edits the original programmers didn't see straps, bolts, etc.and different CNC machines ran on different G code programming no standard format

  3. How do you like your LongMill after using it for an extended period of time? Is there anything you would recommend (or not recommend ) about it? thanks

  4. I am about to enroll for a 2 month CNC machine operating course. Do you think two months is enough to be a CNC operator?
