    Hello to all . I am very new to this conversion lark . Just got a boxford 160 1992 vintage and it looks like its hardly ever run every thing works and sounds very good. But of course no cnc control at all. So i would be very grateful for any help with making it run from a pc. I can program manually no problem . lots seem to use mack 3 Thats ok . I do have a planetcnc 2 usb controler but no idea how to wire it in if its possible at all . So any diagrams, drawings ,tips, warnings or links will be off help .Thanks
