    Thanks Christophe, but there is a lot to do before I can get it to work, electrical system, still working on the software to operate it. :O)

    Ah, Mach3. The other CNC controller. I use LinuxCNC myself. Mach3, and LinuxCNC are both forks of the same NIST EMC code base. That's something not many folks know. They're a lot different now though. Personally I don't see why anyone would shell out money for abandonware, as opposed to running the same thing free, and open source. Well, like I said, a lot of folks just don't know.

    In life what you don't know does tend to cost too. The LinuxCNC configuration Wizard is pretty straight forward. There's no menus. Just a succession of windows, with forward, and back buttons. Stepper Configuration Wizard

    Thanks good info but I have win 98 on my other computer which I run a sign making machine and intend to use for this build so Linux is out of the question. but thanks for the info and your reply.

    Linux is out of the question, yet you still run Windows 98? Now that's the very definition of out of the question. I thought the yo-yos still running XP to support Mach 3 were loons. You take the cake though.
