    I may be able to get a copy of the Boxford software, so I am keeping the fingers crossed at the moment. Logistically its not a runner for me to ship my lathe to the uk for conversion at the moment. And any contacts I have made in Ireland, have either not got back to me, or scared the living bejesus out of me with prices.

    And as I have no electronic experience at all, I think attacking this blindly will result in smoke and metal. If I am lucky enough to come through on the software, can I run it directly from my laptop, and what adaptor would I need.
