Hello from Leesburg, VA
« on: July 20, 2017, 12:42:01 AM »
I'm a maker and modder, I have been since I was given my first soldering iron at age 10.  A few years back (about 10 I think) I was building some crazy PC cases and decided I needed to build a CNC machine.  I did, then another, and another, and have not stopped.

I was asked for plans on how to build them, so I started writing books.  My company and web site "Kronos Robotics" is also the name (imprint) of my publishing company.

I currently have seven CNC books published.  Some I sell on my web site, others online at Amazon or Powell's Books.

I am also into a little fabrication and have a couple plasma cutters one of which is on my smallest "KRMx02 CNC" build. This was done as research into building a plasma CNC book.

I like creating build projects for CNC owners. I post them on my website. Some as workflow examples, others as complete projects with drawing files.

@Mike
Honestly, I tried to keep it toned down, I did not join this site to advertise.  I don't need to.  The last 10 years or so has been devoted to building and writing about CNC machines that is what I do, so that is what I put in my introduction.

And please, passive aggressive comments like that in an introduction forum is a little off handed.  Nice way to welcome someone to a forum.

I joined primarily to jump into the CNC forums.

Welcome to the collective :borg:

Sounds like you have a good knowledge of CNC. A welcome edition here.

Care to share some of your cases etc? We all like looking at other peoples work.


As far as the initial comments... I really don't mind people advertising as long as they are active members of the forum  :nrocks: Everything ends helping in one way or the other and that is what we are here for. Right?

Shake hands and be nice  :D

hi and welcome

Sorry, no disrespect intended, but at four o'clock in the morning, I just saw your first post as a sophisticated way of advertising and promoting your products; nothing more, nothing less.

There's nothing aggressive about me, welcome to the forum.

Welcome! :beer:

Looking forward to seeing some of those projects in the CNC section (and elsewhere if you're subject to manual madness as well!
I love it when a Plan B comes together!
