Good day Bearmos,
Indeed, it is pretty exciting... and scary too in a way, as there is a lot of know... Hopefully my training was absorbed. Luckily the original owner, who I purchased the unit from, has offered to provide me remote setup assistance/training as I need. This is a huge help and really reflects the character of the owner. A true gentleman in all sense of the word. Sadly it will be several weeks before I am ready to "jump" in, as I have a lot of other stuff on the go... plus I have yet to get my reflow and stencil printer sorted. However, there is certainly something empowering knowing that I can now do a whole lot more myself ... like prototyping my BGA designs... I no longer have to bug my CM for a favor to mount a few BGAs to my test boards... or making a number of prototypes rather quickly (if one ignores the setup effort) and to a much higher level... Lastly, there is the entertainment value... For some unknown reason to me I find there is something entertaining/mesmorizing of watching a CNC machine working away :)
