It is simply an opinion. It serves no good or useful purpose to say to whom it was addressed. if, in fact, it was addressed to any one or more particular person or persons.

Getting back to the board and timer failures. Just build better electronic boards and timers. Working on cnc machines for years the boards rarely failed in some pretty nasty environments.

 Sorry Strathy, I did not see your question, but Reg answered it. A (CNC) Computerized numerically controlled machine is any machine that has a computer which is programmed to do various tasks, cutting, drilling, any kind of machining or woodworking usually on an industrial scale. They are programmed to cut in xyz axes.

 I am fairly new to appliance repair. (2years this month)(had to get out of the factory before I lost my soul) but always repaired my own and friends appliances. I forget when I use acronyms from my old profession that I should be more clear. I see acronyms on here (this website) pertaining to appliances and do not know what they stand for, but figure if I read enough posts I'll figure it out.  

 Anyway this website keeps me learning with a plethora of info.. I don't know how all of you find the time to read through all this stuff though.

lol - cool.  Welcome to the fraternity brotha.  Don't be afraid to ask what the acronyms mean when we use them here!  I still see ones I don't exactly know what they mean and I've been at this for 22 yrs.  lol.

Thanks for the welcome. Sometimes all the different machines are overwhelming. I just take them one at a time.

GMAC. Gas metal arc welding. MIG. Metal inert gas. TIG. Tungsten inert gas. Gas used to sheild the arc from impurities.

 

What is BTW? Just kidding.
