The ProtoTRAK CNC is unique and so are it’s operators.  Those who choose ProtoTRAK most often have a different agenda in mind then simply making machined parts.

They are craftsman who recognize that a CNC control should help them efficiently do their work, not slow them down like most CNC’s often do.  No where else on the web is there a community dedicated to ProtoTRAK and it’s unique users.  It’s long overdue!

myProtoTRAK is a place to openly share knowledge with other ProtoTRAK users.  SO do so.  Ask questions, post opinions, share amongst other nationwide users… take part!  This is a free resource, and will always be as long as we are involved.  At the end of the day it’s what you guys out there all make of it, but with a little bit of everyone’s involvement it will no doubt become a great resource that helps build-on and spread ProtoTRAK success.  We are a nation built on innovation and creativity, and ProtoTRAK helps us continue the legacy.  Embrace it!
