    Hi Thank you for reading this plea for help.
    I am looking to buy a Dahlgren dsc2000 black box to drive a Gryphon Suregrave router.
    From left to right on the front it has 7 tactile push switches lcd display, 3 variable pots, 1 stop tactile push switch.

    Here's hoping

    Hi Paul

    Yes I would like to buy the black box.

    I now know that the Hi Drive 1 and Hi Drive 2

    will do the same job as the black box.

    Thank you for replying to my plea of help

    I'm not sure of what to ask for the Dahlgren dsc2000 to be fare, its hard to find any information on this, I have a manual of sorts and a bit of software that came with the machine but once I convert it to mach3 I will have no use for any of it. If you could help out on a price of what its worth then that would be brilliant otherwise I will have to look into it.

    if anyone else knows of the value of this black box dsc2000 please let me know, many thanks

    What is a mach3 setup

  9. #9
    Mach 3 is a software programme that will do the brains of what needs doing in the sense of moving the three stepper motors to what has been programmed in Mach three.
    This is then fed into a drive system that will talk to your thee stepper motors.

    I’m a novice here, how exactly are you running mach3. Is it a graphics package?
