    The best book you will ever find is the grouchy ol' grey haired bastard nobody ever wants to talk to---- if you know who he is, and you ain't buddied up to him, you is a missin the last o the last. Books are for filling in what you didn't hear or understand what he said. Oh and did I forget to mention, he is running out of days and interest.

    Perhaps I shouldn't have written that, It lets me sound bitter.

    Well, I do not know anyone locally (west Chicagoland) who would be a CNC machinist.

    Agree on Peters books, especially the one on macros/subs. It cleared up a lot for me.
    They're available at MSC

    Download the Haas vmc manual for free, great source of information.
