    My desktop CNC mill is a Contour Minor which was converted to MACH3 before it came to me, I have added a 4th axis and converted it to 3-phase with a VFD.
    It currently runs on Windows 7 without issues, earlier operating systems are an option,

    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D
