    Hi chaps
    need some help with above lathe, I bought it today and it seemed to have all the software needed. That is until I started to load the cad/cam software and it asked me for a 3.5" floppy registration disk. Am i in trouble chaps or is it easy to get.

    Sounds like ancient history. The normal idea for a registration floppy was they used a laser to burn a tiny hole though it. If it could read and write where the hole was then it told you to get stuffed because they knew it ws a copy.

    Is there a way round this or do I need to rip all the control gear out and convert to mach3

    there is a certain amount of boxford software out there and you may be able to get a newer version. I've no idea where to look though.
