I have a Standard Modern 1334 and am interested in converting to CNC, has anyone undertaken converting a similar sized lathe, if so any advice on motors, drivers, controllers, ballscrews, etc, will be appreciated


General Mach Discussion / Mach3 with Mitsubishi s500

has anyone had success in connecting the S500 series Mitsubishi controller via (RS232) Serial to Mach3, if so please point me in the correct direction to do so.

Hi Hood,

please ignore my last question, it was in ignorance as i still done yet know how CNC works.

Hi all,
i have installed the free Mach3,  on the default setup

is ir possible to reverse the cordinates on the X and Z axiz, i.e make z + moving to the left and x + moving in toward centre?

When you sat I/O there are two busses. the one to the PC which is 5V and the one to the machine, which n mine is 12v.

if you want the one to the machine at 24v then this is very achievable.

Hi Hood,

I designed mine because I wanted to convert a hobby Myford ML7 to CNC, and was disappointed by current low cost boards and the need to use multilpe boards.

Although i currently develop using PIC micro's, i feel these may well be insufficient for Motor control and I have not touched FPG's in 12 years, due to a career change. So you can see why i am reluctant as a first go to jump in boots and all.

However if you are willing to write down some details of what you would like to see on a basic "Industrial" board controlled by Parallel Port, I'll look into it and see how achievable it woud be with minimal change to my current design or using minimal microcontroller functionality.

Point taken and i may well follow up with this as a second board.

My first board is a simple discrete compoent board, I may if interest is there go down the route of a more featured design. right now I am trying to avoid coding micro-controllers or fpga's.
