What functions does the Galil plugin preform? Software translation? Math Cal? Formating?

In other words what is the problem to be solved on Galil?

Smurph:  Thanks much for the education on motion control boards.  "progress is coming along nicely", does this means months away or years?

Interested in getting a machine running G code during the summer?

Two Issues to Clarify

Have Galil board:  Galil has a nice simple program language.  How to convert G code to Galil language.  Surely this has been done and completely checked out?  Can we have a single standard unified program for this--- checked for quality.  Any comments.

Second Issue:  Where are the motion control board guys on the critical path to completion of whatever they are working on?

Have a lathe Leblond 17x80 want to try Mach 4 now.  Nearly ready with mechanicals servo cabinet etc,

New to MACH3
I just installed a Mach3 system on a Enshu Japanese Mill circa 1980. 
I am in the process of building a CNC Lathe using Mach3
So I am more familiar with building Mach3 systems than making parts.

Now then ---are there any tutorials showing how to make parts that is applying the Mach3 CNC--- to doing work building parts?
