Great news! The first of our large CNCs, the Bergmaster VTC-150 Vertical Mill has been repaired. Basically a couple of relays needed to be rebuilt and some limit switched needed to be replaced and then bam! it was up and running. We are in the process of learning the controls and getting the correct tooling. But a video of us learning the first steps from a helpful operator can be seen here CNC First Video. Hopefully people will have some projects ready to go once we get all the tooling together!
