Just thought I'd introduce myself, name is Joe, just ordered my Asteroid this weekend, cant wait till it arrives! I'm 43 and been a woodworking hobbyist since I was about 15, I work in Sales for a wholesale cabinet supply company so I get the added benefit of woodworking being part of my day job too! We sell lumber, plywood, finishes, hardware, accessories to custom cabinet makers.

I hope to do a lot of reading and learning (been teaching myself Aspire for a few weeks now) and contributing when I can. I did a lot of research into "desktop" CNC's over the last couple of years and just kept coming back to the Probotix machine, I hope it is as good as it seems to be.

Thanks in advance for the help I know I will need :lol:

Joe

I have had my Asteroid for a month or so now (replaced my V90) and I am so impressed with the difference. I love the asteroid and I think you will be happy with your choice.
