    Have you asked the makers of Kay, if they offer a demo version, who can control the machine for some days. If the Board in the machine is ok, then you don't need to buy extra hardware.

    I have asked Isel UK and sadly he was unbelievably unhelpful - apparently they offer no demo and I should plug it it and see if it lights up, then its working and I should buy the soiftware! that was the advice.

    I believe from a little googling Kay demo is available but I need a PC with a serial port (not parallel)

    Yes I got a similair response when enquiring about spindles and spares. Germany never even replyed to several emails.

    Hi,
    First post.
    I believe, well in my experience with an ISEL GFM 4433, the software, in my case Galaad 3, requires a dongle to be inserted in the parallel for authentication purposes. So if you didn`t get it with the machine it may prove difficult.
    It`s always possible that things have changed in recent years though, but worth looking at.

    A colleague has several new Isel machines bought, and he has the same experience. The machine is too old, the SW is outdated, but you can buy the new for several grand and so on. But iirc Kay comes from a different supplier, so ask the firm if they can offer a test, a serial port is not really a problem.
    You can add a PCI card or if you want to buy a new computer, there are many
    who have a serial port in it. And eventually an adaptercable from USB to serial is also working.

  7. I have downloaded Kay demo and so I`ll get a serial cable today - sadly they are 20 from maplin and only 3 online but I`ll have to wait! I need some patience.

    Contact Bertrand at http://www.galaad.net/home-eng.html

    Looks like you can download a limited demo version to try

  10. If I was going for a 40v supply, what sort of current would I need?
