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,
- NickIf you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

I dont think i have the knowledge or skill to convert to mach3 would it be expensive to pay someone to do the conversion from what i have read it seems the way to go Hopefully i can find someone that lives near Belfast Thanks
