Need help near Oak Island, NC

I’m looking for longmill owners that live near Oak Island NC. I’ve placed an order for the AltMill and expect it to arrive Nov/Dec 2024. While wating I’m attempting to learn as much as possible and would like to visit longmill owners near me or possibly Raleigh, NC.

My only experience with a cnc is my Shaper Origin (aka SO). Not that I’m an expert with it but it has introduced me to the topic. All i need to do is create SVG file to the correct size and place it on the SO and make my cuts. Because the SO rests on the surface of what is being cut you are limited.

Looking forward to meeting and learning.
