    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,

    If 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
