great thread.(and thank you shilling)  i made the changes mentioned and got my mega working within an hour or so!
now i just have to do the hard bit- sending/receiving these registers to old i/o cards on my machine via the arduino on  a seperate com port.
stupid things have 192600 baud rate and an xor checksum ..... wish me luck!

Galil / Re: Galil controller compatability (what works with the plugin)

That was a good short explanation! Lol
I have 8  Ethernet  Eco 21series controls and 4 optima 2200 series on the spares shelf!
Oh well.
To be fair. My machine has been superb at its original job of point to point cabinet work- and also something it was never made to do originally- small and fine carving work. Only possible due to the mach3 plugin you did.
Maybe il have another look at 4 next year. See how it's grown up .

Ok. Seems like il stick with m3 for the moment then.
Question re contour mode, in what way is it better than linear mode?
Any chance of a quick explanation ?

Most of my machines are still running the old version 4 smarterm plugin. My programs are not huge and it's worked well
Il try the newer 4.6 with the next one.
M3 is probably easier for me as Ive learnt a lot about writing macros and how it all works since I converted the first big one !

Hi steve.
What is the status on Mach 4 galil etc?
Another one of my big Biesse original controls has just done the splits!
I just got a new 2280 (same as I used in the first one)
I just read that your only going to support the accelera series?
All my machines are on the older 2100,2200 or 2183 galils.
Have you got a price yet for the m4 galil plugin? Happy to pay for it
Or am I best to stick with m3?
I have purchased m4 but haven't licences it to a PC yet awaiting a supported plugin

Galil / Re: Which Galil to use??
« on: January 16, 2013, 06:46:37 AM »
the j2s-40a drives work perfectly in step/direction mode so no galil controller is required
(only every buy the a suffix models for cnc work as the b, c, cp etc are no use at all for cnc work)

Galil / Re: Adding an A axis

i dont know, the pokeys motor release is new and i dont have a board here to try,
it may be worth installing the pokeys plugin and see if there are any conflicts.

i think smurph would be able to answer this.

using the galil plugin the parallel port cannot be used i believe.
for a 4 axis machine you ideally require a 5 axis galil (extra axis for variable spindle speed)
