Wow Hennie, I was actually joking. I did not realize that you really are that busy. It is very good man I am happy for you that work is coming in at such a rate. If this keeps up, you will be on your feet and running in no time.

I dont know if my machine will be ready in time but I am more that willing to assist where I can. Just let me know.

The casing for the memory stick, how small must it be? I am busy putting a very small machine together for a friend. It could maybe cut something like that.
Do you have the electronics to work from?

Thanks Gerald will look into it.I got involved with a Marketing company that is all green so they come up with the ideas but someone still needs to figure out how to make it happen.Kobus I will let Them contact you Monday to make the arrangements I thought it was only 15 old timers that did this for a hobby wow! 90 people sounds good.How is that coffee this afternoon. Have to put some time in this morning on the machine have to catch up on some serious cutting.

A funny thing happened Yesterday for the first time I had a fuse blown in my control box,one from the mains, ok fuse was replaced.This morning I switched the machine on and guess what it took of in the x- direction and no signal to the machine again!.I plugged the cable out of the computer and the ghostly motion stopped.So the problem is at the computer again.All looks ok in the control box.

Praat jy.Ok I managed to get one of the old computers working that packed up a week ago that the computer Nerd told me in plain Afrikaans "hy het sy gat gesien".The same thing happened so by the way the computers are not even switched on.It let me think since I use a broom often and my shop assistant cleans every day in the morning and in the afternoons he might have stepped on or damaged one of my cables going to the machine.Kobus I gave the details to the powers so hopefully thei will contact Denis.

Hennie, silly question. What does your earth on the machine look like? If you wired the limits according to the MM drawing, you will have neutral running all over the machine. If the earth is not good, funnies will happen.

Bamboo round table

I was asked by The Bamboo company to make a round table for them so I asked them what would be the spec`s so they said just make us a round table So I did and are they going to get a surprise .
The pic`s show legs cut and as the table progressed I thought that I can do some inlay`s last pic of the inlays where before final coat of sealer.

Hennie, Looks like you are incapable of building a simple round table...

Love the table!

Kobus, Broom? Mythical personal transporter...
