What CNC'ers Are Saying

“Having the lesson over Zoom, being able to both see my project and help me struggle through the hard parts was a very good learning experience for me. You have a very helpful way of translating your many years of experience into extremely effective training. I am a definite newbie that just couldn’t get passed a few steps and now I not only worked them out, I feel I can apply the lessons moving forward. This one session was easily equal to hours and hours of watching YouTube videos.”
