Acquired two Boxford Duet desktop cnc machines in an auction.
The software that came with them is DOS based and i would like to update them. Luckily the manuals i got have the schematics.
I also would like to use the existing electronics if possible.
The DB25 pin-out shows the pin numbers and functions but there are a few I'm unsure about.

Has Anyone convertered one of thes yet to Mach 3/4? There are some old post but the are incomplete.

thanks, John

I'm changing computers my old computer has the license on it

How do I get it to my new computer.

Also I running unlicensed on my new computer to set up the I/O I have a Ethernet smooth stepper.

Will the demo still generate motion signals cause I can't se m to get any movement when I try to jog the machine.

I know I read about moving the license but I can't seem to find that post anywere.

It's a Bridgeport Series 1 R2E3

When i got it the DC power supply was shorted. So i replaced everything with new controls but keep the Factory DC servos.

Ethernet Smooth stepper, CNCDrives servo drivers, 80 volt DC power supply. AMT-102 encoders. Used the factory enclosure and servo cables.
Automation direct VFD single phase to 3 phase so I'm using the original motor.

Mach3 seems to conform to the vertical screen. but the boxes need some resizing.

I don't thing the touch screen likes windows xp as its acting goofy

probably gonna switch computer to something more sutable to mach 4

first picture is suppose to be vertical??
