Galil / older isa bus galil with mach 3
« on: September 06, 2009, 08:28:30 PM »
Hi Guys,

Now that I see that the bugs are worked out when using Mach3 with a Galil card I want to make the switch.
I have never had any problems with Galil, it works great.

My question is. I was looking at the minimum specs for Mach3 at 1Ghz.
I am sure the computer I was using was not 1Ghz. Lots of ram though.
What happens on lower speed computers?
Can you even get a motherboard these days with an isa slot on it to upgrade processor?

If Mach3 will not run on slower computers, what is the best/affordable 4 axis galil card to purchase?


Hey Guys,

I am getting closer to my ordering of components. Thanks for all of your feedback.

Looks like I am going to buy the campbell combo board.
But I must have a pendant. Does the Keiling MPG-2 work ok with Mach3 and this combo board?
If I am reading the documentation correctly I can just attach the pendant to a second parallel port.

Thanks for any help. Sorry I have been making so many request.

Hi Guys,

I am thinking about getting a campbell combo board. I will be using it with Gecko stepper drives.  Anybody had problems with the new board.

Hi Guys,

This is my first visit.

I currently have a bridgeport series 1 cnc mill running with the following things. Have been using this setup for about 6 years.

Stepper motors from Pacific Scientific

wingcnc software from jraco (similar to Camsoft very stable, but very basic)

Pendant from jraco that works with galil

galil optima dmc 1740 isa card

Ahha 4 axis controller box  ( I had to integrate 2 Gecko g210 drives after 2 Ahha drives went bad and Ahha has closed its doors)
And by the way, the Gecko drives are far superior to the Ahha drives.

I am very interested in trying Mach3 or whatever Mach version is the best.

From your experience is Mach a stable software?

Should I continue to use the current Galil board? And if so why and how do I do it?

I know I am asking for much on my first post.

Thanks for any help.
