I own a small waterfowl call company and have been hand turning for years. I recently purchased a sherline 4400 cnc lathe with the computer loaded with EMC2. I have read the G Code How tos it came with and......wow I'm lost. So I attempted to download a couple of cad/cam programs thinking that drawing my call parts might be easier, then translating into gcode. I'm so lost. Any help with literature for beginners would be appreciated. It seems as though everything I read goes way more indepth than I need to worry with. All I need to know is how to shape the ooutside and do some simple boring on the inside.

Also if anyone out there is interested in writing a few gcodes for me to get started I would be interested in talking price.

Help Please. my email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Thank you.......Gary Gatewood

I have attached some of my calls to use as reference.
