    makes it really easy to use mach, no more clearing an area to use the mouse, and it gives a good size display. Well worth the expense.

    All our machines have touch screens on them, there is no place in a workshop for a mouse.

    Look on Ebay for screens out of one armed bandits, very heavy duty, frame mounted and because they are not in fancy cases you can pick them up for 50 or so.

    Well Hi all im back on the project after 8 weeks working away. A quick recap will let you know the hardware side of the machine is completed to a stage where i can start using software, and having decided from the begining to use mach i was looking at the next steps. Having spent most of my time away from a conected machine this has been hard but for ease of use im leaning toward Vcarve.

    There was an odd thing with the machine which i believe is configuration but im not sure. When i use jog or the shuttle the axis move at full speed, but when i use the mdi and just say type.. X 100 the axis just seems to jog really slowly any ideas??
