Let’s kick off 2014 with a topic machinists love to chew the fat over:

Should CNC Machinists Learn Manual Machining First?

I’ll go on record as saying I learned it first and based on that experience I think it is very beneficial but not a requirement.  I say that because learning manual first limits the number of new concepts a beginner has to master.  Jumping directly into CNC, particularly if we’re talking about every aspect from CAM to chips, is a much bigger commitment.  OTOH, many feel it is a requirement every CNC machinist should fulfill.

I’ve prepared a survey so we can quantify everyone’s opinions about the matter and maybe see what the consensus is among machinists on this topic.  Let us know your thoughts on the matter:

There’s only a few questions and it won’t take but a minute.  Once you’re done, you’ll be able to see how other’s voted.
