Thank you Tweakie. My mill has the input for a USB cable from the computer and it goes into where the manual control pendent plugs into also. Is this the motion controller that you are speaking of? And I didn't know you can upload and use the demo software to get the mill going either. Wow you just gave me a great jump forward. I'll use the laptop just to get the machine going and will get a PC in about a month from now and reset the system to the new PC. Ok now I can go home after work and try something new to drive me nuts. Thanks for your quick response and help Tweakie I'll let you know how it works out. Have a great day.

Hi Jimmy,

I have no way of knowing - do you have a manual for the mill ?

Good morning Tweakie.  Jimmy here again. Guess what I got my other laptop hooked up and got my mill to turn on and I do have control of spindle and axis moves.  My problem now is that my screen does not show the entire control panel. The neg x And y axis buttons on the screen are barely visible. I tried dragging, minimizing, maximizing the screen but nothing works to adjust the control panel to the screen. Any advice for me on this one?  Any way with your prior help I did get to see and hear my machine run and I thank you greatly. Have a great day T.

Hi Jimmy,

I am very pleased that you have managed to get it working OK.   :)

You could try Config. / General Config. - Auto Screen Enlarge and see if that helps but I would just change the screen size in Windows / Properties / Settings.

Best regards,

Tweakie.

I am located in NW South Carolina and am setting up a system.  I would like to make contact with someone within several hundred miles who is using Mach 3. I will do mostly plasma cutting and maybe some wood routing.  Using CandCNC and Precision Plasma.  Please contact me at jwiljrj@netscape,net or 803 533 8000.  Thanks, Jimmy Williams

Just thought I'd drop in and introduce myself. I'm ordering my CNC soon and thought I'd familiarize myself with mach3.
I'm a professional woodworker and I'm hoping to speed up production by letting the CNC do the grunt work. Thanks for having me.

Hello gurus,
noobee here from the land of Oz.
I wonder if some kind soul would share a GCode for any small PCB. I have set up my 3040 and now I need to test it out and I have not had the time to make/design a PCB on EAGLE.
Best
