cnc m.40

CNC M.40 THE LAST PART WE DID ON THE CNC MILLING MACHINE BEFORE THE TEST. ROTATION WAS USED TO GET THE HOLES AT AN ANGLE INSIDE THE RECTANGULAR POCKET
THIS IS THE PART THAT WE HAD TO DO FOR OUR CNC MILLING MACHINE TEST IN MY COMPUTER-AIDED ENGINEERING COURSE. LOOKING FORWARD TO FINALLY GOING ON THE LATHES MONDAY.

Must find a way.

I must try to upload photos to this blog again soon. It's the only disadvantage with my Nokia E5. When I had Sony Ericssons, I could upload a photo straight from the phone. Usable wi-fi hotspots are few and far between and I don't own a computer. I have to prioritise. I need to get a job and a girlfriend and driving lessons before investing in a computer and an internet connection of my own. Until then I'll have to make do with internet cafés. But I have photos I want to upload for blogging about my computer-aided engineering course in FÁS.
It's going well(the course), but some people are so slow that they are holding back the rest of us. I was hoping to be learning how to use CNC lathes this week. I have the part run and all the paperwork printed for the CNC milling machine test. But there are still stragglers getting bogged down by it. So I spent today messing with AutoCAD. I'll probably just have to keep on to my instructor and start asking when can I move on to the next thing?
