On Saturday I drove into the metro with Paul KC0HST to check out TwinsLan Tailgate Swapfest 2012 at the 3M campus in Maplewood.

Item #7 is a CNC mill for creating circuit boards. Nylen WA0VEX built it and used it for several years. He has a bigger one at home so he is sold this one to me. I will drive into the metro later today to pick it up. I figure that I probably should get a test run with him so that I know how to set it up. I have been looking at buying or building one of these for about 18 months. The price and timing were right.
From a builders point of view... the hamfest was a home-run for me.
