  • CNC

    I, like many of you, am stuck in the 50's with machining technology. Old low tech equipment, etc. So can anyone recommend a good book on CNC? What it is, and isn't; how it works, what G-code is, etc. To me, CNC is like space travel....I've heard of it but don't the first thing about how to do it.

    Bdarin,
    One of the better ones is The CNC Workbook by Frank Nanfara as one of the co authors.
    This has a simulator disk included so you can see what you are doing. Reasonably expensive, about $40 or so.
    Do a search on http://www.abebooks.com with Nanfara as the author and you will find 5 hits.
