Been down the road as an auto mechanic, worked as electronic tech and moved into test engineering before getting BS in computer science. So hardware and software make sense. Not afraid to grab the MiG welder and put stuff together and have built a few Mini Kossels run by LinuxCNC and Arduino/RAMPS. My K40 is the newest toy while my garage is still too cluttered to put up my original Maslow CNC. Hoping to cry a little and get rid of stuff to make a better maker space in the garage soon.
