Instructor Gordon Long

Hi Dwayne,
Here are some pictures of our completed retrofit.
The mill works great! I really like the M400 controller.
It's been a total pleasure doing business with you.
From the beginning, you have been quick to respond with clear communication, expert advice
and knowledgeable answers to my questions while I was doing the retrofit.
I'm pleased that you have first hand working knowledge of your products.
Your components are top notch in every detail from fit to finish.
The paint on your castings even matches the paint on my mill!
When my students and co-workers see the mill, they are impressed and eager to learn how to
use the control. Thanks for the excellent support.
I look forward to our continued relations.

First of all I want to thank you for the tremendous amount of support that
you have given us.  We surely wouldn't have been able to pull this project
off without you.  I know we took a lot more of your time than a typical
client.  I left you a voice mail the other day telling you that we are off
and running.  We cut a few parts on Weds.  The control package is
exceptional in ease of use and function.  I can't believe how easy it is to
run this machine.  In addition to cutting parts we have also already used
the TT1 and the digital proble.  I know we will enjoy this machine for many
 Please accept my sincere thanks for your
continued support, you are true professional.

Route 66 Compu-cut DIY Knee Mill Retrofit Kit

This is way overdue, but nonetheless, Thank You for your help in converting my Bridgeport into the machine that it is today. The CNC retrofit could not have gone any smoother! The quality of your hardware/mounting kits are first class.

I was searching for a CNC upgrade option for my mill but others REQUIRED that the kit be installed by a certified installer. The fact that I was able to do the install myself was extremely gratifying and even more importantly saved me some serious money. The success of the installation would not have been possible without the support that you gave me over the phone. The fact that you provided me with your mobile phone # and not just an office # speaks highly of your superb customer service. 

The combination of the Centroid package and your kit have been a pleasure to work with. I can now honestly say "How did I live without a CNC mill". It sounds cliche but it is so true, it has  been a huge time saver. Not only are parts machined faster but I can also be productive (on another task) while the part is being machined! One more thing that I must mention for all those out there that have never operated a CNC machine before, I knew nothing about programming on a CNC before this. 

Thanks again Dwayne,
