I am interested in building a cnc. I am mechanically inclined and have done= mostly metalworking. I have never used a cnc. However, I need to do this c= heaply.
I am wondering what a cnc can be used for? I mean, my interest are furnatur= e making. Can one I make be used to joint wood, cut tennons, make signs etc= ? Rails and styles and the like? Can you tell me what type of machine I wo= uld need?
Also, I don=92t know the G code language. Can I use a cheap program that wi= ll convert a picture I draw online into the G code to tell the machine what= to do?
Like I said, I am really interested, but cost is a major factor right now.
I appreciate it!
