Please remember the colder weather can affect your machine, so warm up those shops. Also, please ground yourself before touching the machine to avoid zapping your controller, memory card and any other electronic parts.

If you have a small space heater set it up so it blows warm air into the machine for about 10-15 minutes. Just make sure it is far enough away that you are not over heating it...

I keep my machine in my basement since the shop is a detached garage and way too cold... not to mention there is no room from my lil' machine out there...

I keep a small space heater and laser thermometer in the basement and check the machine in the winter and bring it's surface temps up to at least 55-60 degrees before running it

Good tip!

29 degrees this morning in North Texas - Heater on in the shop - must have during the cold months.

+1 on the surface temps of 55-60 before running.
