Christmas Trees
« on: December 19, 2006, 11:03:03 AM »
Seasons Greetings!
Made these on my Mach converted Boxford TCL 125 lathe. The code was originally for the BBC Computer but I rewrote it for Mach.
Xylotex drivers, CNC4PC breakout board, BEL spindle drive card.
Just for fun.

Very Nice Ian.  :)Merry Christmas. This subject will most likely be moved to the design exchange. I think it should be put up on the general board for a while though. ;)
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

My guard dog is not what you need to worry about!

Pretty Slick!  But, I would be REALLY impressed if someone could figure out how to make a MONEY tree!   ;D

I also have just converted a TCL 125 to Mach 3 with Xylotex board etc. I am trying to tune the motors but not having too much success - does anyone have a working XML file of the config they could send to me at

Many thanks in anticipation
