The control panel is sanded, painted and installed!  No buttons or MPG functionality yet...  But the screen and keyboard are up and the look and feel matches the BP412 too.

Cool looking panel. Where did you get the buttons?

Joel, very nice example of what you started with and recycled and how it turned out. Job well done. Thanks for continuing the inspiration!

Bump this up for more progress pics and information on this monster..... I thought you might like to know I have gutted my Cincinatti arrow to start the retrofit.  I am going with the LinuxCNC/mesa combo on mine so I did not post a build thread here since it is not mach3 related but the journey has begun. I can only hope to fill your massive sneakers here with my build man. I will give you a shout here sometime soon. Have a bunch of questions about the teco motors and drivers and tuning them etc.... Hope you are still making progress on the DM it looks awesome. Peace

Pete

The buttons are standard arcade buttons.  You can get these on the cheap from eBay.   They come with 12VDC LEDs and all kinds of colors.

I did get some time on the CNC.  Mainly just doing small things instead of working on what needs to get done (ie Spindle Integration), so I got the windows put back in.  I had polished them earlier and wanted to get them installed before they got messed up laying around the shop.  The old window seals are hard and should be replaced, but once I started I just wanted to get it done.  For some reason this was much harder than the BP412 project.  After several hours of pain… the windows are installed but seals will not fully seal.  I made sure the gap is at the bottom and made these little seal covers.  The covers are 8 inches long and will allow me to fill in the gaps with black RTV gasket sealer.  Hopefully have a picture of them installed soon.

(Pete:  Glad your digging into the Cincinnati too)

Thanks for the update Joel. Starts getting long in the tooth towards the end doesn't it. I dunno. I think the seals would drive me nuts and want to replace them pretty simple. I think my local auto body shop sells it in bulk.
I'm getting a little further along on your machines little brother the DM4400.
Persevere Joel, you will get there!
