I have tried to post a couple times but not much luck? I wonder is there something in my settings not set correctly?

Hello to all. Not new but haven't been on for a long time. It all looks a bit different. I can't see any dates anymore. Is there a reason I can't see post dates?

Hi Guys, nice community of skilled craftsmen you have here! I started making signs for a shop in Denver CO. back in '81 doing hand routed/carved redwood signs, had to switch to MDF and HDU in the '90s because of redwood availability and cost, then added a CNC in '99. I've been running the CNC dept at a shop here in Palm Springs for the past 15 years. I use Enroute 5 pro on two MultiCam routers, also have an Engraver and a 120w Laser.
I've followed Dan Sawatzky for the past few years since he uses the same basic setup, I've gone through most of his tutorials and made some sample plaques, lot's of fun! We do a lot of different custom signs, mostly ADA on acrylic as well as electrical signs and everything in between. I don't get the call for a lot of the cool 3d stuff but have had the chance to work on a few cool projects over the years, I'll post some stuff in the showcase soon. Always a pleasure to see what others are doing with their talent.

Hello guys my name is Amos. Just signed as a member. I am very interested in the cnc sign business. My background is in machining for the past 25 years. I am looking to purchase a cnc router and start a small sign business that will transform into full time work. Any information or help on what should or shouldn't be done would be great. I am in the research stage right now and need as much info as possible. Thanks and I am looking forward to talking to you.

Welcome Amos! feel free to ask specific questions on a new thread. Another thing you could try is the search function for some previous discussions. Of course you can do both!

Hi, everyone! I'm a long time woodworker who has enjoyed designing and building furniture for our home. I've built items ranging from keepsake boxes to a king-size platform bed and many things in-between. I have a nicely equipped woodworking shop and added a Shapeoko 2 CNC last February. I've done some modifications to it along the way, so the best way to describe it now is an SO2/OpenBuilds/XCarve hybrid. I built it to fit an area in my shop to it has a 600mm gantry, which is my Y axis and a 1500mm X axis. I recently upgraded to a DWP611 router, replacing the original 48VDC 300W spindle.

I'm definitely a hobbyist and have made things on my CNC for family and friends. Not that I wouldn't take money for something if offered, but that's not my objective. Woodworking of various types has kept me busy and active since I retired 14 years ago.

I hope to learn more from all you folks here.
