repetitive boring stuff.

That's what women are for :rofl:

If you can turn, mill and are willing to butcher your machinery then CNC will not be a problem for you.

CNC is a liberation. When curves become just as easy as straight lines, you output suddenly starts to look prettier.

Thanks Irvin, Robin, do i know you:naughty: CB625?

I have just bought a small Boxford 125TCL in need of updating. Which sections appropriate?

No problem writing in basic i have a nice Casio calculator still from 1984. Ok on the Apple 2E but forget the Atari ST.

I also converted my 125TCL some years ago, these photo’s give some idea what needs to be done if you are going to control it from a PC I, use Mach3, unfortunately I don’t have any of it finished, if it would help you I will open it up at the weekend and take some more.
